Capitalization?[edit]

Who came up with the idea of writing HTTPd rather than the usual httpd? Shouldn't it be corrected? Rp (talk) 10:33, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

No! Its own documentation consistently uses HTTPd. Rp (talk) 15:46, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Licensing history?[edit]

Now marked free software, was it always so? Under which license? Palosirkka (talk) 19:05, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

See e.g. [1] which states the code is in the public domain. I'm not sure this is actually possible though (it definitely was, in the US, until 1989). Rp (talk)


notability?[edit]

At the beginning of the world wide web, there were two HTTP servers. One of them would become the ancestor of more than half of the web servers in the world. How is this not notable? 130.167.180.3 (talk) 14:08, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
