    Apache Version Question

    I have noticed that most hosts (at least hat I have seen) do not run Apache 2.0. I have been out of the "game" for a while and was wondering if there was a specific reason for this. If I remember correctly someone will of course tell me to search these forums. I did already do that and came up with about 46 pages of which none were related to what I am seeking. I am just curious on why most hosts have stayed away from Apache 2.0.

    I am not a host but have a server running Apache and I kept it at 1.3 because of the issue with compatibility with scripts or control panel.

    As mentioned on PHP website (in manual as well) Apache 2.0 is not fully compatible with PHP. Although I know some host running Apache 2.0 and PHP without any problem, but if you dont want to have risk, keep ver 1.3

    This is what is stated in the "install" note of PHP

    ATTENTION: Apache 2 Users

    At this time, support for Apache 2 is experimental. It's
    highly recommended you use PHP with Apache 1.3.x and not
    Apache 2. .......

    It's still in development and not recommended for production use.

    Which makes you wonder why it comes with the distro these days.

    Probably so that it allows those who have an iron-clad heart to work on fixing the incompatibility issues. Linux is a collaboration of efforts from people who believe in its causes and want to contribute to making it even better.

    Apache 2.0 is ready for production use, the php module for Apache 2.0 is still in development.

    It's largely due to the lack of module support. With all the changes in 2.0, it takes quite a bit of time to port everything over, as some things must be completely rewritten.
