Apache Web Server

Apache web server is used on various popular web sites such as Wikipedia and Apple. It has been known to support high user traffic with ease. Less maintenance is needed as well. This web server has a strong community to answer questions on installation/support but also to help in contributing in building higher versions of its particular web server.

Cons

  • I think it could use a web UI to configure it
  • It could allow PHP to override configuration without having to modify it
  • I've never seen statistics for it so I assume there is not much built in

  • Out the box configuration might not be ideal for supporting heavy loads (25+ apps per instance)
  • There is a learning curve with the tools provided but isn't a big con IMO

Alternatives Considered

Apache is often used in conjunction with Nginx, with Nginx in front of Apache to serve static assets like CSS and JS. Both are easy to configure. IIS is pretty cumbersome and is not as flexible as Apache.

Clearly better in terms of performance when compared to RedHat JBoss.

Return on Investment

  • It's open source so the price can't get any better.
  • It's easy to find people who know how to administer an Apache web server due to its popularity.

  • Costly prior to negotiating an enterprise licensing agreement with Oracle
  • Learning curve associated with the platform and lack of documentation
