Apache HTTP Server

The Apache Project is a collaborative software development effort aimed at creating a robust, commercial-grade, featureful, and freely-available source code implementation of an HTTP (Web) server.

Originally designed as a replacement for the NCSA HTTP Server, Apache has grown to be the most popular web server on the Internet.

Apache is redistributed as part of various proprietary software packages including the Oracle Database and the IBM WebSphere application server

 Apache 2.4.9

Free to download
