A very popular WEB SERVER developed and distributed free of charge as OPEN SOURCE software by an Internet-based community of unpaid volunteers. Apache's great strengths lie in the availability of its source code and its well-defined interface for writing add-on modules: many large and profitable e-commerce sites run on modified versions of Apache. The name is a wince-making pun on the phrase 'a patchy server', bestowed because of the numerous software PATCHES released for it in its early days.
