Apache 1.3.20 Now Available

The Apache Group is pleased to announce the release of the 1.3.20 version of the Apache HTTP server. Apache 1.3.20 is the best version of Apache currently available; everyone running 1.2.X servers or earlier are strongly urged to upgrade to 1.3, as there will not be any further 1.2.X releases. At present, the Win32 port of Apache is not as stable as the UNIX version.

Apache 2.0.16 Beta Now Available!

Apache 2.0.16 is the first public beta of the forthcoming Apache 2.0, an update which includes several new enhancements, including the new Apache Portable Run-time, the new Multi-processing modules, and I/O filtering. This is a beta release, and is not intended for production use; use it at your own risk. It will be available in both source and binary format. The binary implementations will be available as they are created.

If you are not familiar with software development, and wish to use a stable, working, web server, we strongly recommend you download Apache 1.3 instead. Please report any bugs you find.

The Number One HTTP Server On The Internet

Apache has been the most popular web server on the Internet since April of 1996. The February 2001 Netcraft Web Server Survey found that 60% of the web sites on the Internet are using Apache (around 62% if Apache derivatives are included), thus making it more widely used than all other web servers combined.

The Apache 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.
