The Number One HTTP Server On The Internet

The Apache HTTP Server Project is an effort to develop and maintain an open-source HTTP server for modern operating systems including UNIX and Windows NT. The goal of this project is to provide a secure, efficient and extensible server that provides HTTP services in sync with the current HTTP standards.

Apache httpd has been the most popular web server on the Internet since April 1996, and celebrated its 17th birthday as a project this February.

The Apache HTTP Server ("httpd") is a project of The Apache Software Foundation.

Apache httpd 2.0.65 Released and Retired2013-07-09

The Apache HTTP Server Project has ended legacy development of the 2.0 legacy branch, and announces the conclusive, historical release of version 2.0.65 of Apache HTTP Server ("httpd"). No further releases will occur for the 2.0 version family.

This version of httpd represents the last security and bugfix release of 2.0, although it is by no means all-inclusive of either security nor bug fixes. The Apache HTTP Project developers strongly encourage all users to finish their migrations to stable version 2.4 or the legacy version 2.2 for additional, important updates.

For further details, see the announcement.
