Apache Web server is an open source software package that runs on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and many other operating systems. When you install Apache, it shows an installation page displaying "It Worked!" and instruction to add your own content. Adding your own content to Apache's home page involves placing a single file in the Apache Web server's content directory.
