okay, my bad, i was sure there was something like “apache 1.3 on linux” before the recent website update.
But i even found this in an old readme file from v4.6:
so, leofonic is right. i’m sorry for my fake news.
Since my statement displays my opinion, it can’t be wrong per definition.
And if you take couple of seconds to read my post more carefully than you did before, you should realize that i did not say anything about PHP, but just webserver in general. Webservers are more than just PHP. A developer should actually know this fact…
By the way, i’m absolutely not a “windows hating *nix guy”. I use windows at home and at work, but unlike some other people i’m aware, that a desktop OS which originally was developed for other purposes than servers and is also known for having more security holes and bugs than every other software, can not fully replace a dediacted server OS and provide all the same functions and features in the same seamless way.
Just tell your hoster you want a windows server on the internet “for PHP and stuff”. He will laugh and say “good joke. You are joking, right? Please tell me, you were joking. You are not joking? Whats wrong with you?”
Just because you can install apache on a potato, it doesn’t mean you should run a webserver on it.
