More About Apache
Apache first appeared in 1995 and is a project of the Apache Software Foundation. The Apache community helps ensure that it is always compliant with current HTTP standards. It is one of the most widely-used HTTP server software options. It can run on many popular operating systems, including Linux distribution, Microsoft Windows, and UNIX. Moreover, it supports a variety of authentication techniques and programming languages such as Perl, Python, and PHP. It offers highly reliable performance because it uses Multi-Processing Modules (MPMs) to better cater to a wider variety of infrastructures. Finally, the name “Apache” is said to be in reverence of the Native American tribe.
