Apache Web Server: Introduction and Installation
What is Apache web Server?Apache is a most popular, freely available open source web server. A Web server accepts HTTP requests from web clients and serves them HTTP responses in the form of web pages that contains static (text, images etc) and dynamic (scripts) content.
According to the Apache Software Foundation:
The name 'Apache' was chosen from respect for the Native American Indian tribe of Apache, well-known for their superior skills in warfare strategy and their inexhaustible endurance. It also makes a cute pun on "a patchy web server" -- a server made from a series of patches -- but this was not its origin. The group of developers who released this new software soon started to call themselves the "Apache Group".
