I will try to be short ad possible with sharing my knowledge and opinion about Apache. Pros and cons will be the best way,


1. Popularity. Still number one Web server around internet
2. Well documented and mature product
3. Quite easy to install, easy to configure.
4. Almost all in one solution (build in support of PHP, CGI, PERL)
5. Present in all popular Linux distributions.
6. Compatible with major management systems: Webmin, Fantastico, Cpanel, ISP config. Part of Zend server.
1. Technologically outdated
2. Not good for the single server for many concurrent connections
3. Consumes far more RAM than new generation web servers
4. MOD PHP is very slow solution for PHP requests handling

Apache web server

What I think about Apache, well it is Apache first of all, mature and reliable, perfectly documented we servers. What else ? It’s standard… but not for me. I’ve made my choice – Nginx. So you will not find much stuff about Apache here. However if you have small web project with low traffic – Apache will be best solution for, do not shit your brain with Nginx and PHP-FPM shaman rituals.
