This also means that needless software packages can be removed to make the OS lighter and swifter, that can directly contribute to much better hosting server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, because this application is also free, quick and reliable. It's the most widely used web server available and is an element of the LAMP bundle that many script applications, including WordPress and Joomla, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
