Apache Web Server

Well Suited: Perfect for hosting your own website. And, I don't mean just an individual with a port of MySpace. I mean an industrial strength, commercial grade replacement for Microsoft IIS. If you need a web server that provides a feature-rich environment with support for multiple sites (hosted in the same server), with such features as virtual hosting, and modular feature design, than Apache Web Server is right on the money. Less Well-Suited: Single page, small feature-set websites. Apache is a lot of trouble for developers to set up, just to send/receive JSON strings of a few bytes. You're really better off using something smaller and faster/simpler (lighttpd for example).

Pros

Apache Web Server

  • Apache server is a free and open source multi-platform software which gives ample amount of possibilities and options to use it without worrying about the hardware configurations much; it runs on almost everything!
  • It is easy to configure quickly for a new project requires to set up a barebone server to serve any type of HTTP request.
  • It allows us to configure https with encryption and configure virtual hosts easily.
  • Log files are detailed enough to determine vulnerabilities by providing multiple params which makes it easy to diagnose and debug the root cause of any server issue.

Cons

Apache Web Server

  • The one thing that I worry about Apache is the PHP language which is integrated into the platform. I am not sure if PHP has a relevant future. I worry about this because Python is becoming very popular.
  • Some, not so sharp developers, might complain about the configuration file. Yes, it is complex. You need to learn it.
  • Apache SSL documentation can be better.
  • I would like to see video streaming, that would be fantastic.

  • Error messages. This is perhaps the biggest area that needs improvement. They can be cryptic as all get out sometimes. Then again, that can be a fault for the whole system.
  • Backend configuration - sometimes you just don't know where things lay on the backend: where data-stores are located, what directory is this really pulling a deployed file from. There are reasons that Oracle provides (for a fee) training and certification classes.

Apache Web Server 10.0
Based on 1 answer
I give this rating because there is so much Apache documentation and information on the web that you can literally do anything. This has to do with the fact that there is a huge Open Source community that is beyond mature and perhaps one of the most helpful to be found. The only thing that should hold anyone back from anything is that they can not read. RTFM, my friend. And I must say that the manual is excellent.

Alternatives Considered

Apache Web Server

We chose Apache because it handles dynamic content better than Nginx and it's very well supported. Nginx does handle high traffic sites better, but most of our sites do not get thousands of visitors or more a day as we are a small company serving niche markets. It is notable that you can use Apache and Nginx in tandem, serving static content with Nginx and then handling additional requests with Apache.

Return on Investment

Apache Web Server

  • Recently, we've had an issue with one of our sites constantly crashing due to too much traffic. Apache had to be continually tweaked to allow for the extra traffic. This caused some downtime for the client and us.
  • Normally, once you set up Apache, you can usually just forget about it and let the server run.

  • Low maintenance with good support equals a good ROI
  • Licensing and upgrade costs are significant but well worth the investment
