    Apache.

    Why?
    More secure. More memory efficient. Better Support. Benchmarks faster with PHP. More stable....


    Yeah, just better

    It depends a lot on what you are doing. If you are going to host a web site on PHP/PERL, than better choose Apache, if you need to host asp pages, than certainly IIS.

    So it depends on the need, but apache can be used for asp.net too right ? Also IIS can be used for php as well. For other people that state security, is it because apache on Linux? how about apache on windows ? Will be secure as well ?

    I won't start a Windows Vs Linux war here but I will say your web server is only as good as the OS your running it on. Which doesn't say a whole lot for IIS.

    And before anyone says... I do hold a current MCSE due to contract needs but I also have a Linux+/RHSE. I wouldn't trust Microsoft with my data even if Windows was free.
