Cherokee vs. Apache: the Older Indian Serves Better?

Filed under
Reviews

Cherokee « is a tiny, very fast, lightweight Web server. It is implemented entirely in C, and has no dependencies beyond a standard C library. It is embeddable and extensible with plug-ins. It supports on-the-fly configuration by reading files or strings, TLS/SSL (via GNUTLS or OpenSSL), virtual hosts, authentication, cache friendly features, PHP4, custom error management, and much more. »

That was from its own page. Álvaro López Ortega, a Spanish 26-y.o. guy living in Dublin, where it currently works with Sun Microsystems, dared to challenge the de facto leader of web servers -- that is, Apache.

Cherokee is a free, alternative web server, started in 2001. Its only limitation is that it doesn't yet run on Windows, but only on Linux, BSD, Solaris and MacOS.

I wanted to test Álvaro's statement on Cherokee: « Es el más rápido de todos los servidores web » (in El País, Jan. 5, 2006).

Full Story.

If you were looking to jump the Ubuntu ship completely, then we recommend taking a look at our recent Review of Fedora 24. It’s equally as good as Mint 18 and equally worthy of your consideration. Between Linux Mint 18 and Fedora 24, we reckon it’s exciting times in the Linux world. With the exception and onset of the boring world of vanilla Ubuntu releases, Linux feels reinvigorated and fresh once again. Jump on board, because it can only get better from here. Read more
