    Yeah Apache is fine. It’s also the application that made Linux survive let alone become as huge as it is

    @netikras I think he meant the apache web server, not the foundation. He's not entirely wrong either because htaccess files are an abomination.

    @Commodore Isn't it called 'httpd'?
  • 2
    @netikras that's the binary's name yes. I've always called it apache though, so did everyone i met so far, no idea why ...

    @FrodoSwaggins did meaning of 'fine' change ?

    @Commodore It's maintained by the Apache Software Foundation and is officially called "Apache HTTP Server" and is one of the most popular by the foundation.

    Why is everyone calling it "Apache"? Guess its too long and calling it only "HTTP Server" is a bit ... imprecise.

    @0xFFFFFFFF compared to Microsoft httpd I would use Apache any day of the week. It’s either that, nginx (also fine) or some stupid hipster crap that uses JavaScript.

    @FrodoSwaggins there's an actual alternative to apache httpd, iis or nginx ?

    @sbiewald that would be my guess as well :>

    @Commodore no, there isn’t that’s my point. Well there is actually, I have hosted web servers with inetd in a pinch, http is so easy to fake. I also run my own web server on my personal servers

    @FrodoSwaggins for accuracy's sake I think we forgot tomcat..

    NGINX FTW. Apache can't handle that many connetions and eats RAM.

    Bleh, some of us use Apache because that's what we know, the sites we run aren't going to hit hundreds of users per second, and memory requirements aren't really an issue.

    Nothing wrong with that.

    I've seen someone cock up an nginx deployment more than once, accidentally opening nasty security holes in one of those cases because they wanted to "move with the times" without really understanding configuration differences between the two. Sometimes it really is better to stick with what you know.
