This also means that needless software packages can be removed to make the OS lighter and quicker, which can directly result in far better hosting server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, due to the fact that this application is also free, fast and secure. It's the most popular web server out there and is an element of the LAMP bundle that numerous script applications, like Joomla and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
