What is most valuable?

I think the speed and traffic handling are the most important things. It is also more secure to use Apache and will have fewer problems than other web services.

What needs improvement?

The Apache Server and the Nginx load balancer are Linux based. This is good for our security. Windows has a lot of security issues. Maybe if we could find a good operator to configure it then it would… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Apache is free but it is not free because you don't run software without a device or services. I do not know exactly. Because of the licenses and because of the prices, most of the companies go with… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used other solutions for other reasons but we have only used Apache Web Server, the Nginx, Linux we are using, and the IAS (Integrated Access Systems).

What other advice do I have?

Of course, I would recommend this service because we have had a good experience with it. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Apache Web Server as an… more »

What is most valuable?

The best thing about Apache is that it is open-source, so implementing my platform on-premises is less expansive than other solutions.

What needs improvement?

Better integration with other environments is needed. It would be great if technical support for Apache were available in Iran. It is a very important need.

What other advice do I have?

The first point of using these services is that you have to use scripts for deploying the web servers on the systems. They can be effectively used in many platforms and deployed for heavy duties, but tuning and improving them requires some work. Automating with scripts will help to save some time. My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to deploy it on a Linux-based server and… more »

What is most valuable?

Its community is its most valuable feature. Solving problems is easier on Apache because so many people know this product. It's the most iconic, used web server in the world that I know.

What needs improvement?

The improvement can be done in the versions. Even though there are newer, stabler versions available, if you are installing from a data center, you have to install the older version. Then, installing the newer version is uncomfortable as it has to be done manually. A monitoring interface would be… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used a number of servers. Previously, I used NGINX. I switched to Apache because it has model and is more flexible.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend the solution to others. I would rate this solution as a nine (out of 10).

Apache Web Server Questions

What is Apache Web Server?

The Apache HTTP Server Project was founded in 1995 by a group of webmasters, known as The Apache Group, with the aim of developing robust, richly-featured, freely-available and commercial-standard Web (HTTP) server source code. The result was Apache Web Server or Apache HTTP Server, which is an open-source public-domain web server.

This collaborative project has been enhanced ever since with contributions from the core development team and other volunteers situated all over the globe. Also, hundreds of users of this open-source web server have contributed code, ideas, and documentation. The project falls under The Apache Software Foundation, which manages many open-source projects.
