Many Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, as this software is also free, quick and reliable. It's the most popular web server available and is an element of the LAMP bundle that a great many script apps, such as WordPress and Joomla, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
