IIS sees more gains over Apache
Netcraft's February 2007 Web Server Survey results have been released this morning. The latest data confirms a definite trend that kicked off about year ago: web servers running Microsoft IIS are on the increase and Apache is on the decline in terms of 'market share':
"Microsoft-IIS gain 935K sites, continuing an advance that has seen Microsoft steadily chip away at what once seemed an insurmountable lead for Apache. In our Feb. 2006 survey, Apache held 68% market share, giving it lead of 47.5% over Windows (20.5% share). In this month's survey, Microsoft's share has improved to 31.0%, narrowing Apache's advantage to 27.7%."
