Hello all,

I work on MySQL and i have knowledge about it. I have no idea of what Apache is? I googled and came to know just like MySQL it is also a Web Server and nothing more about it. When people ask me if i have experience with Apache?! I feel bad when i say no :( . I would like to know what are the similarities and differences between both?? Aren't they both just some different servers or is there anything specific about Apache ?
Please let me know.

Thank you.

You install MYSQL on apache
equivalent I think to installing acess on windows
you can run MYSQL on other web servers, on windows, on OS10, but there has to be an underlying OS
