To determine the best web server for your use, consider the needs of the website you manage. Does it need heavy security (for e-commerce), multimedia (music, video, and pictures), or the capability to download files easily? How much are you willing to spend for the software? Do you need software that is easy to maintain and troubleshoot or that includes tech support? The answers to these questions might steer you to something other than what we covered in Chapter 23, “Apache Web Server Management.”

This chapter does not provide a detailed tutorial for these alternatives to Apache, which is by far the most popular web server. Instead, it describes each alternative with enough detail to help you consider whether you may want to investigate it further. All the web servers in this chapter are available in the Ubuntu software repositories.
