The article discusses the Apache Web server software. The development of Apache began in 1995, when a small group of Webmasters produced their own bug fixes and software patches for a server software that stalled during development. The group collaborated via e-mail for the common distribution of these patches, and later, eight core contributors to the code of the server formed the Apache Group. The Apache Group became The Apache Software Foundation in 1999. The group depends on volunteer programmers who are into open source code development.
