The Apache Group is hoping it can build on its Unix success to move into the Windows world with an upgrade of its Web server software.
Apache Version 1.3, currently in final beta testing, is due within a month with the first port of the software for Windows 95 and Windows NT 4.0. The free, open source product also is being upgraded for more than half a dozen Unix platforms, including Solaris.
Apache still retains a large lead in the number of public Web sites that it hosts, currently more than double the number of sites being hosted by Microsoft's IIS.
Getting the Windows NT port complete for Version 1.3 was the main reason for the upgrade, plus the addition of new configuration and setup systems for the Unix versions.
