Countdown to 25 years - has httpd changed your life?
Hi wonderful apache people!

As we count down to the 25th anniversary of the Apache Group, founded
February 27th 1995 (first release of the apache webserver was in April
1995), I'd like to put some extra effort into the quarterly board report
I, as chair of the project, have to present to the board of directors at
the Apache Software Foundation in February.

So I thought to myself, it would be fun to get some testimonials to
showcase how this project has survived, grown, and remained in the top
for 25 years, helping people achieve their goals and in the process
helping people grow. Personally, I would not be where I am today without
this project - I owe so much to it, and it has helped me reach many a goal.

If you too have been affected by httpd, or if you just think this is a
really nifty piece of software because it helps you do X, Y or Z, please
let us know on this thread. I'll later collate the responses, shorten
them a tad, and compile a shortened list of testimonials for the board
report.

You can tell us about your experience with the product (httpd), the
project (the apache http server project), or just your interactions with
the people involved. Please keep it concise, as we wouldn't want to
force the board to go through 150 pages :)

With very warm regards,
Daniel.

Hi Daniel ,
Can you please help me to know why there was no new code release for apache HTTPD since Aug 2019 ?

Can you please let me know the schedule for apache HTTPD release for 2020.

The httpd project was my springboard into so much: opensource
communities & development, the HTTP protocol, SSL/TLS (and, taking it a
step further: cyber security), web scripting (via CGI) and more complex
applications (via the httpd module API). I got involved in 1999, and
almost every step that I've taken in my career path can be backtraced to
some fundemental knowledge or skill that I obtained in those early days
- more often than not, involving the httpd project.
