Clearly one of the best open-source products for running web servers

  • July 13, 2015
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
You can download the basic Apache server free
Configuring Apache requires editing directives in text files
User authentication and access control are managed primarily via .htaccess files;
As a platform for development, Apache directly supports CGI scripts and server-side includes, and its wide variety of modules provide plug-in support for Perl, PHP, emulated ASP, and other page-generation and Web-scripting languages.
What do you dislike?
Authentication and security options in the basic Apache server are limited.
Apache's performance starts decreasing once many concurrent users jump on your site where Nginx's performance doesn't drop.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Running my webbased monitoring application on apache server
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Apache HTTP Server remains the undisputed leader in Web servers, and experts have cited the following reasons:

Apache is open-source software, and it is well documented, which provides for
valuable and reliable support options.

Apache is consistently updated with new features.

Apache can be used free of charge.

Apache supports multiple hardware and operating system (OS) platforms.

An Open Source webserver, that is default with most hosting providers

  • March 01, 2014
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Free, Open Source and Cross-platform.
It can be quite easily deployed locally (especially when using a LAMP or similar distribution), for testing purposes and is very widely used with web hosting providers.
Good performance and extensive control.
What do you dislike?
Finetuning security, permissions, special behaviours requires extensive technical knowledge.
For most average users, having a GUI dashboard is required.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It was available out-of-the-box in OSX for quite a while, so very fast to test web development locally. Since Mountain Lion, you need to manually enable and activate it, though.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
It is widely known and covered in countless books, tutorials and classes, so it is a very valid choice as your web server platform.

Nothing to say about it.

Very useful for beginners to start working with it. :)

Solid and Reliable

What do you like best?
This is hands-down the best web server available. It's easy to install and configure. It's easy to find help when you run into issues. It has a huge community available for support, and it's open source.
What do you dislike?
There's really nothing bad to say about Apache.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
It's been around for years and it's a rock solid, mature product. This would be my first choice.

Excellent open source web server

  • March 11, 2013
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Mature, stable, free. The go-to web server, literally powering the majority of the internet. Mass adoption. Extensive documentation.
What do you dislike?
Community-based support, unless you arrange for a third-party support contract. Also prone to vulnerabilities, so constant updates required.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
An excellent choice for an open source web server.

Very popular, but also a memory hog

  • December 01, 2012
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
It’s a proven web server (stable and reliable) with a thriving community. Lots of goodies are available for it. It's also free.
What do you dislike?
Configuration and set up can be a pain. Memory usage may be an issue if you have high traffic. Will need some expert tweaking in that case.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Use it if it meets your requirements. For a small, fast, low memory web server that excels in concurreny take a look at Nginx.

Open Source, Free & Rock Solid

  • November 16, 2012
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Apache is the standard web server for almost all Linux OS', and it is one of the easiest web servers to get up and running straight out of the box. Constant updates from the community keep the web server secure and using the latest technologies.
What do you dislike?
Exploits are often found and some of them can take a long time to have a resolution. As it is open-source, the bug list is publically accessible, so a malicious hacker could find a bug and design an exploit easily (this has been done multiple times).
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Apache is the way to go for a free Web Server. It ties in with tomcat and many other Apache products (as well as non-Apache products), that unless you are running code specific for Windows, then you should use IIS.

What do you like best?
Why do I like apache? Well, why not? It's amazing and it runs like a top! Anyone who has ran an IIS and an apache server can tell you apache runs for ever. I have apache servers that run years without needing to berebooted. Where I have monthly reboots on IIS.
What do you dislike?

Do it

The defacto server for the web

  • November 06, 2012
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Ease of install and use, relatively easy to extend to enable critical web scripting langauges (php, perl, python), very flexible.
What do you dislike?
It is not known for it's speed. Seems like NginX is becoming popular option for those looking for greater speed.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
This is still the server of choice when developing on a local machine, and the most widely supported.
