A fairly flexible system but a little complex.

What do you like best?

Its flexibility to be used in any operating system and its compatibility with other applications are 2 of the things that I like most about this product, they really are var many advantages that it has, but without a doubt that multiplatform function is what most attracts everyone to use it. Ahh and of course it is an open source server, the best.

What do you dislike?

many times the configuration is quite complex so that the system can work properly, adding that its administration is not as good as other similar services, and also that I think it should be able to integrate with more applications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The Apache web server is completely free and can be downloaded by anyone in the world.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to manage my website from my own server is something that has helped me a lot at work. although I really have to use other systems to complement the faults.

Apache, is there anything better?

What do you like best?

It is the best HTTP protocol server in the world, and even if it has decapitated its use in recent years, this should not be for a long time, since its community of collaborators is one of the strongest and most accredited in the world. Millions of users daily confirm their preference with respect to other web servers. Apache is always the first choice for developers in programming languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etc. Apache is very friendly with applications developed with open source tools, almost all development languages have libraries to adapt to Apache. Your wide community is the best support for online help: when a problem arises, surely someone solved it and one can benefit from this. The behavior records recorded in the Logs files, are detailed and offer multiple parameters to determine vulnerabilities, that can be identified by security tools, many of them also open source, such as ModSecurity, Mod_evasive or other tools. Apache also has one of the best supports for open source database managers such as Postgres and Mysql, which work harmoniously with this, allowing high quality applications. Apache is undoubtedly the best option, easily configurable for development or production environments for applications that require from simple requirements to high availability

What do you dislike?

maybe they could include in the solution, graphical solutions for Gnome or another Windows management for linux, to measure their performance

Recommendations to others considering the product

Apache should always be your first and last selection

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

all my application prototypes are tested and tuned with Apache, one of the last was an implementation of OTRS software for ticket management

What Application Server solution do you use?

Most efficient server for LAMP Environments

What do you like best?

I am working as PHP Developer with Macate Group and I am using Apache server, since its inbuilt in LAMP environment. Its really very easy to use and can start,, restart or stop the services or jobs just with a command. Its very easy to install and can run n number of jobs. As all the other servers may do it, but I prefer Apache more useful for me and also its an open source

What do you dislike?

I believe no software is perfect. The big dislike I face with Apache is with the port numbers. It usually should work for me on 80 and 443, but when I open skype, the numbers automatically cannot change and need to update the port number automatically in the config files

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its an open source and very easy to use. But the support will be terrible

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Running bigger cron jobs and updating the queues . Populating the database fields by using external API's and storing the data in the database. The benefits are 1. time saving 2. Optimization 3. Secured etc

Apache is the simplest and cleanest webserver available today.

What do you like best?

I like the fact that Apache works across all platforms, but also that it is so amazingly extensible. The fact that you can proxy servers from behind and make them available via this secure engine is brilliant - especially for node.js and dot net core projects.

What do you dislike?

Very little, there is almost nothing to dislike - perhaps the only thing I would say is that for Windows/Mac users there isn't a decent reliable GUI tool to admin config files - aside from a text editor - but to be honest that isn't really a dislike, it is just part of working with Apache (and its related pieces of software).

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a simple web-server that can be used cross-platform (config files cascade operating environments with minimal problems for example) - and want to use it to secure and hide other services you have behind and have those services served by Apache - or a secure Web Server - then Apache is the way to go.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Allows us to host dot net applications as well as any other technology that we want - but still have the security of Apache.

It powers a big part of the Internet

What do you like best?

Apache is Open Source Software: that means you can modify it to suit your needs without breaking any license agreement. You can find an Apache webserver running on a variety of environment, from hosting servers to local developement. It is easy to install it on your own machine and use it to learn and test many applications.

What do you dislike?

It isn't the most performing anymore: there are some solutions that seem faster than Apache, though you can set up a very reliable web server with it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do you have an old computer and you need a local webserver to start developing your own websites? Do you want to learn something about webservers by configuring your local machine? Then go for Apache: you can install it by yourself or using a package with a DB included.

Do you need a web hosting? Many use Apache as their webserver: it is reliable and stable, and it is open source: that means that the software can be continuously improved by the community.

As it is Open Source software, it's inexpensive. There is a cost, though: you obviously pay for the expertise needed if you purhnase services based on it. If you use Apache by yourself, then you'd consider the time you spend as the cost for setup.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've set up some local development machines and I've learn some useful skills while configurating them. A great advantage is that you don't have to spend any money to buy a license (but remember, your job have to be compliant with the same open source licenses Apache has been released under).

Apache Server Review

What do you like best?

Been using apache server for a lot of things, and it has proven to be extremely reliable and load efficient. It supports a wide variety of web development languages. Also, it is super simple to install. The best part - It is Open Source!:D

What do you dislike?

Maybe they can set up a GUI for configuration files. That would make our life a lot easier. I am not sure if they have kerberos support, if not, they should consider including this.

It would make a lot of big commercial firms use Apache server.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I cant think of anything else even closely competitive with apache server.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using apache server to the simple internal website we maintain for our team. The best part is we are not using any company funds to maintain this.

I have also used it for many personal projects, and it has just served the purpose.
