Novell has shipped a couple of different Web servers with NetWare over the past few years, including a NetWare version of the Netscape Enterprise Server in NetWare 5.1. There have also been one or two shareware Web servers (such as WebWare for NetWare 3.x and 4.x) and LanWeb (also for NetWare 3.x and 4.x). But now there's a NetWare version of the world's most widely used Web server.

The Apache Web server is used by more Web publishers than any other http server, no matter what Microsoft might lead you to believe. The biggest advantage of Apache is its price - it's free. But it's also one of the best examples of the "open source" movement - software that's support and added to by a multitude of programmers worldwide.

The NetWare version of Apache 1.3 is still in the "experimental" stage, and it (so far) only runs on NetWare 5 or 5.1. Nevertheless, if you support a major Web site and haven't been completely happy with the NetWare Web server (from NetWare 4) or the Netscape server (from NetWare 5), and if you want to take advantage of the hundreds of Web server applications available (also for free) for Apache - it would be worth your effort to download and test the new Apache in your environment.
