Apache Web Server

If you are only serving up simple websites such as those on WordPress or plain html, then it might be well suited for that. Higher traffic websites or heavy load websites might be better suited for Nginx server as it spreads out the traffic among several threads.

Cons

  • Sometimes a little hard to patch.
  • If you're not careful with the settings, you can easily provide too much information about your server to people you don't want to.
  • If you're not familiar with text configuration files, it can get a little hairy, as there is no GUI interface for setting it up.

  • The UI is not as robust as the tool and lacks some useful fuctionality
  • Cost is significant depending on use and how it will be leveraged
  • Oracle needs to produce a better guide for getting started

Alternatives Considered

I have loved Apache and the brief experience I had with IIS wasn't as good. Nginx I have heard good things and though we use it heavily for our servers now without problems, I haven't configured it myself.

In the relatively short time I have worked with WebSphere and WebLogic the latter has hands down been the better solution. WebLogic is easier to use has led to better configuration replication and scalability and less performance and downtime issues for us. It is the standard or recommended application server for a number of applications and platforms making it a versatile investment for us

Return on Investment

  • Apache helps things run smoothly, rarely needing a reboot
  • Gives helpful error messages to solve problems easy
  • Occasionally we have had to modify file upload size, request timeout, and parameter size which is annoying when it has to be done on a lot of servers or cannot be done through code

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