Poll: Which Webserver do you use?

Posted on in Categories Apache, News last updated June 23, 2006

Our last poll asked readers of this blog the question:

Are you going to try or upgrade to enterprise grade Ubuntu Linux (code-named Dapper Drake)?

Thanks to everyone, total 338 people responded to the poll. Results are as follows:

  • 51% said they are happy with current setup/Linux/BSD distribution
  • 33% said they are willing to upgrade
  • 15% said they are not sure or they are not going to upgrade

It looks like people are following old mantra: If It’s Not Broken, Don’t Fix It. Personally I will stick to *BSD or RHEL only.

New poll: Which Webserver do you use?

Again I am using Apache 1.3x and lighttpd (for rails apps). I am interested to see what fellow sys admins are using and why?

  1. Apache Rocks. My server is not a big; just a mini running at home, presently serving my friend’s site- http://www.djdeep.co.in

    It will soon start serving my site also when I have made the scripts for my new site http://www.itech7.com

    And My server was started around Sep 2007 and I am sticked to Fedora 7 now but will soon upgrade to Fedora 8 (i have DVD).

    Since Apache 2 is bundled with Fedora, I am using it. Also it has gr8 performance.

  2. I use: Apache2 and Apache2.2
    Why?: support for many libraries and mods and clean config – on debian at least 😉
    Why not Apache 1.3?: not enough traffic to my servers to warrant the use of 1.3. It may be lighter, but it also doesn’t have as many features as >2.

    Just my 2 c/p/y/etc…
