The Apache Webserver
http://httpd.apache.org Apache has been
the most popular web server on the Internet since April of 1996. The March
2002 Netcraft Web Server Survey
found that 54% of the web sites on the Internet are using Apache, thus
making it more widely used than all other web servers combined.
The Apache HTTP Server Project is an effort to develop and maintain
an open-source HTTP server for various modern desktop and server
operating systems, such as UNIX and Windows NT. The goal of this
project is to provide a secure, efficient and extensible server which
provides HTTP services in sync with the current HTTP standards.
The Documentation Project is an effort to maintain and improve the quality of the
documentation included with the Apache HTTP Server. Participation is open to anyone
with a little time, a little knowledge of HTML, and hopefully a little knowledge about
the Apache HTTP Server. No programming knowledge is required, so this is a great way
for non-programmers to contribute to the success of Apache, and to have their work
read by millions of Apache users.

management, security, open source software, website authoring, and more... It has run since 1996.

PHP (recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor) is an open-source server-side scripting language (freely
downloadable from php.net and zend.com) for creating dynamic Web pages
for e-commerce and other Web applications. A dynamic Web page is a page that interacts with the user, so that each
user visiting the page sees customized information. Dynamic Web applications are prevalent in commercial
(e-commerce) sites, where the content displayed is generated from information accessed in a database or
other external source.
Chili!soft, purchased in 1990 by Sun/Cobalt, brings ASP (Microsoft Active Server Pages) to the Apache Server. ASP is a Visual Basic sort of
scripting language which can be used to create dynamic web pages in much the same manner as PHP does.
