The Apache web Server is one of the most successful Open Source projects in the world. This is due to it having the majority of Web server market, it is even more successful than Microsofts IIS server.

History Edit

The Apache project started with programmers creating patches for the Mosaic web server. When Support for this stopped the programmers decided to build the patches into a working program. Because of this the name is actually a pun on being "a patchy server".
