-shadow it is possible to make Apache build all
its object files and executables in a new subdirectory. The
name of this subdirectory is based on the current operating
system. This option can be used when the source is shared
amongst multiple machines (for example, if it is shared with
NFS in order to build Apache on multiple platforms).
From the next release it will also be possible to specify the
exact location of the "shadow" build tree, which could be
outside of the Apache source directory. This is done with
where DIR is the directory to use to build Apache.
The December Netcraft Web Server
Survey shows that Apache has once again increased its
market share more than any other major server. Now the number
of Apache servers is 53.78% (in absolute terms, that is just
under 2 million servers at 1,984,240), which is up 0.76% from
last month. Microsoft has a share of 23.68% (873,608
servers), up 0.26%. If the figure for Apache includes servers
which are known to be derived from the Apache code, the total
for Apache is 57.85%.
