A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, due to the fact that this application is also absolutely free, quick and secure. It is the most commonly used web server available and is part of the LAMP bundle that a lot of script apps, like Joomla and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
