Apache is the most popular Internet webserver application in the world. It's created by a collaborative effect of software developers.

The project is jointly managed by a group of volunteers located around the world, using the Internet and the Web to communicate, plan, and develop the server and its related documentation. These volunteers are known as the Apache Group. In addition, hundreds of users have contributed ideas, code, and documentation to the project.
What's New
Version 2.4.9:
  • mod_ssl: Work around a bug in some older versions of OpenSSL that would cause a crash in SSL_get_certificate for servers where the certificate hadn't been sent. [Stephen Henson]
  • mod_lua: Add a fixups hook that checks if the original request is intended for LuaMapHandler. This fixes a bug where FallbackResource invalidates the LuaMapHandler directive in certain cases by changing the URI before the map handler code executes [Daniel Gruno, Daniel Ferradal ].

Never in the field of internet servers was so much owed by so many to so few!

Apache is one of those things like Windows, it's popular, but not because it is great. It has many idiotic flaws and the whole server will go down for incredibly stupid reasons that would be analogous to a car not starting because a valve cap is off.

I have been migrating my servers to Litespeed and Abyss. Both are faster, MUCH easier to configure, utterly stable, have easily accessible features, and are much more tolerant to configuration errors (a very minor error will not take the entire server offline. They have free versions and the little bit that they cost for most other versions is well worth the lack of headaches.

I would recommand any user interested in recent Apache and more generally open source software to install macports and get Apache compiles and customized from it.

As a thumb of rule, relying on a packaging system has many advantages. The drawback is that the software you want might not be packaged, in that case, it is not recommanded to try to install itself but rather add the package yourself, or ask the community to do it.
