Web Developer Resource Index: Apache

The Apache HTTP Server is based on the NCSA Web server, which itself originated with the first httpd developed in the early 90s by Tim Berners-Lee while he was working at CERN. Work on the NCSA server at UIUC stopped after the principle developer, Rob McCool, left in 1994. As the NCSA server was open-source software, many programmers continued to work on it independently until, in 1995, they formed a group to combine their modifications (each one known as a patch, yet another of Larry Wall's creations).

This would form what is now the Apache Server Project, from “a patchy server”, though some would dispute this historic name. At any rate, Apache now rules the HTTP/Web server market, as you can see from this Netcraft Survey.
