The overwhelming consensus is Apache: it's stable, reliable, easy to
administer, and best of all, it's free. The configuration is flexable and

Sun web server is the same as/replaced by I-planet (netscape) web server.


Original query
Dear Sun managers and gurus,

        We are considering different Web servers, and just wondering what
experiences you have on installing and troubleshooting on the following
web servers, including their cost, performance and reliability issues:

1. Sun Web Server
2. Apache
3. iPlanet Web/Enterprise Server
