The Apache HTTP Server Project Does It Again -- The World’s #1 Web Server Tops Linux Journal’s Reader’s Choice Awards

Not only does the Apache HTTP Server power more than 106 million Websites worldwide, an astounding 89% of Linux Journal readers have chosen the “competitor-less” Apache HTTP Server as their favorite Web server, according to the 2009 Reader’s Choice Awards.

We were tickled to read, “As with last year, the thought arises in Favorite Web Server category of whether we should just ask ‘Do you use the Apache Web server, yes or no?’ and leave it at that.” According to Associate Publisher Mark Irgang, “Apache is always in there.”

Congratulations to the Apache HTTP Server Project for more than 16 years of technical excllence!


Way to go fellas. Many congratulations to the ASF and specially to the httpd team.

Notable HTTP web server! Most popular and playing a key role in the initial growth of the Internet. Many web applications are designed expecting the software packages and features that Apache provides.
