Apache HTTP Server 2.2.21 is a program developed by Apache Software Foundation. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The software installer includes 27 files and is usually about 767.5 KB (785,920 bytes). In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 10. While about 36% of users of Apache HTTP Server come from the United States, it is also popular in Japan and Brazil.
