Apache 1.3.14 Now Available

The Apache Group is pleased to announce the release of the 1.3.14 version of the Apache HTTP server. The main improvements in this release are to fix security vulnerabilities in the mod_vhost_alias and mod_rewrite modules. Apache 1.3.14 is the best version of Apache currently available; everyone running 1.2.X servers or earlier should 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 2.0a9 Alpha Now Available!

Apache 2.0a9 is a public alpha 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 an alpha release, and is for experimental purposes; use at your own risk. It is available in source format only, so a compiler is neccessary to use it.

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 December 2000 Netcraft Web Server Survey found that over 60% of the web sites on the Internet are using Apache (over 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.
