Linux is a well known OS, that is frequently used for web servers, because it features a number of advantages over other OSs. It is regarded as the most reliable Operating system available and owing to the way it functions, infected files shall simply not work. Because Linux is free to use, no license fees shall be calculated in the price which you'll have to pay for your website hosting service. This, in turn, enables the provider to customize the Operating system based on what they and their clients require, getting rid of unnecessary packages to improve the Operating system and the server’s general performance. Linux servers normally include the Apache web server software, that processes site access requests. Apache is furthermore 100 % free and customizable, not to mention that it is incredibly quick and light in terms of the resources it requires. LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) is the software environment that some of the most famous script apps require – Joomla, Moodle, WordPress, and so on. The LAMP configuration is the most popular one globally, as it's stable and simple to take care of.
