Overall Satisfaction with Apache Web Server

I use Apache (as part of the LAMP stack) to run several web servers that I use in my organization. The web servers provide services such as help desk ticketing and tracking, intranet site, project management, network monitoring, and conference room scheduling. This allows me to provide these applications for no cost through the use of open-source software.
  • Stability - the apache web server is extremely stable, with many months or even years in-between crashes or reboots
  • Documentation - Apache is the #1 web server in the world, so there is a huge amount of documentation for support
  • Compatibility - Apache is compatible with every technology I have come across
  • Powerful - Apache can do a lot with a little, with hardware requirements that are very easy to achieve for low cost
  • Apache configuration can be difficult for advanced setups
  • Apache is configured slightly differently for the various flavors of Linux.
  • Apache is free to use and thus has an immediate ROI.
  • Apache has allowed me to put applications into play in my environment that would otherwise not be possible due to budgetary constraints.
Apache is far superior to Microsoft's IIS. The only reason to consider IIS would be for compatibility with a given software package that is made exclusively for IIS.
Apache is appropriate for every scenario that I can think of, including use on Windows server.
