About Apache

Apache is a free web HTTP server software based on NCSA httpd Ver.1.3 and developed by the National Center for Super-computing Applications (NCSA). It can operate in most environments (Linux, UNIX, Windows, and Macintosh). The Apache Project is a collaborative software development effort aimed at creating a robust, commercial-grade, featureful, and freely-available source code implementation of an HTTP (Web) server. The project is jointly managed by a group of volunteers located around the world, using the Internet and the Web to communicate, plan, and develop the server and its related documentation. These volunteers are known as the Apache Group.[10]
