ARCHIVE / Which web server should we use?
Without knowing any information specific to the individual needs of your organization, we recommend using the Apache Software Foundation's HTTP Server software. The reason we recommend it is that aside from its being free and fast, the Apache web server is extremely customizable and able to be optimized for whatever needs your
organization may have. Because it is the most commonly used web server software in the world by far, you can feel comfortable in the knowledge that it is thoroughly tested and will almost certainly handle your needs. With greater specifics as to the individual needs of your organization, we may at times recommend other web servers but in general you'll probably be better off with using Apache.
