What Apache Web Server Supports?

Apache hosts both static and dynamic websites, drawing on server-side scripting languages like Perl, Python and PHP. These languages are supported through modules or installation packages that can be added over the top of the standard installation of Apache.

How to Install Apache Sever

You can install Apache Server by downloading source from Apache website. Or if you install Wamp Sever or XAMPP server in a local computer, Apache will automatically install on it. Manually installing Apache is more complicated for a beginner.

Various Modules of Apache Web Server

Modules for Apache also include advanced security options, other tools and file management features. One of the most popular modules is ‘mod_rewrite’, a URL re-writing tool that allows webmasters to design custom URLs. The system runs over httpd, shorthand for ‘HTTP daemon’.

Why Apache?

The appeal of Apache largely lies in its free license and open source code, which allows web hosts to offer solutions a low cost. Unlike its competitors, Apache also supports a wide range of platforms and operating systems, including Mac, Windows and Linux. In fact, the system often couples with Linux for web hosting configurations, given this system is also open source.
