Linux is a popular OS, that's commonly used for web servers, because it features a variety of advantages over other Operating Systems. It's viewed as the most solid Operating system available and because of the way it runs, corrupted files will simply not work. Since Linux is 100 % free to use, no license fees will be added to the price that you will have to pay for your web hosting service. That, in turn, enables the provider to personalize the Operating system depending on what they and their customers require, taking away unwanted packages to optimize the Operating system and the server’s performance. Linux servers normally include the Apache web server software, which processes site access requests. Apache is furthermore absolutely free and easy to customize, not to mention that it's incredibly fast and light in terms of the system resources it requires. LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) is the software environment which a lot of the most famous script apps require – Joomla™, WordPress, Moodle, and so forth. The LAMP configuration is the most popular one globally, because it is stable and easy to take care of.
