Overall Satisfaction with Apache HTTP Server

We have some published websites at some servers, some of them are based on [Apache] HTTP Server.
However, it is more like encyclopedic or Wikipedia style use, as it allows to share information about certain products that are used within our organization.
The Apache HTTP Server makes sharing information about services easier.
Moreover, we support a number of clients who have various web servers, I found that Apache HTTP Server is the most convenient in installation and maintenance , comparing with alternatives like NGINX, etc.
  • It does good with virtual hosts implementation
  • It has good easy to read intuitive documentation and tutorials
  • It is widely used so in the Internet there are many examples that could be adopted
  • Some specific modules might be difficult to install
  • Marketing could be more informative; some people prefer NGINX because they do not know how to do it with apache
  • Deployability - it is easy to deploy
  • Maintainability - it is straightforward to maintain
  • It allows to publish a website very quickly
  • Use of Apache HTTPS has positive impact on ROI
  • However, it is an axuilary service so the impact is minimal
Apache is more simple, also it tends to be more stable and it is less complicated to use, comparing with other complex solutions that are difficult to troubleshot.
So wherever possible I select Apache HTTP Server for own/enterprise use also advise consumers to select the Apache HTTP Server against NGINX
