Apache’s flexibility is one of its main advantages. You can modify this open source software according to your needs, and supplement it using basic modules. In this regard, you must also constantly monitor the Apache compatibility. Follow our step-by-step instructions and find out how to know the Apache version already installed.

How does Apache work?

Apache is a popular cross-platform software. He rocks communication between server and client. When opening a Web page, the browser sends a request to the Web server and Apache returns the requested files in HTML, CSS or even JPEG formats as a response.

Do you want to configure an Apache web server? You can add different modules to it. Some of them can also allow you to improve the security and performance of your website. By doing this, you can customize Apache. To avoid any faults in modules or if you want to install Apache for WordPress, for example, check that you are using the correct Apache version.

Run your own Apache web server with the Linux hosting offer from IONOS. IONOS gives you scalable performance, DDoS protection, geographic redundancy and many other features.
