Linux is a popular Operating System, that is commonly used for web servers, given that it features a range of advantages over other OSs. It is regarded as being the most secure Operating system available and due to the way it works, corrupted files shall simply not work. Because Linux is free to use, no license fees will be added to the price you will have to pay for your web hosting service. This, in turn, makes it possible for the provider to personalize the Operating system depending on what they and their clients require, removing unnecessary packages to boost the Operating system and the server’s overall performance. Linux servers typically include the Apache server software, which processes website access requests. Apache is also free and customizable, not to mention that it is extremely fast and light with regard to the resources it requires. LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) is the software environment that some of the most widely used script apps require – Joomla, Moodle, WordPress, etcetera. The LAMP configuration is the most popular one across the world, since it is stable as well as simple to maintain.
