This suggests that unnecessary software packages can be removed to make the OS lighter and quicker, that can directly contribute to a lot better hosting server performance.

It is the most popular web server out there and is a part of the LAMP bundle that lots of script apps, including Joomla and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
