Also know, what is Apache used for?
Apache is an open-source and free web server software that powers around 46% of websites around the world. The official name is Apache HTTP Server, and it's maintained and developed by the Apache Software Foundation. It allows website owners to serve content on the web — hence the name “web server”.
Additionally, how does Apache make money? Apache Software Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation -- (basically a charity). It does not "make money" per se, it just has to cover its costs. They also run conferences which should make them some money too. Their annual budget is pretty small, but that's because they don't really have that many expenses.
Moreover, how does Apache work?
The Apache server is set up to run through configuration files, in which directives are added to control its behavior. In its idle state, Apache listens to the IP addresses identified in its config file (HTTPd. conf). The browser then connects to a DNS server, which translates the domain names to their IP addresses.
What compiler is required for make Apache packages?
The GNU C compiler (GCC) from the Free Software Foundation (FSF) is recommended. If you don't have GCC then at least make sure your vendor's compiler is ANSI compliant.
