I work on a cross-platform Application Server, and we are updating the list
supported Linux web servers. I asked the question to make sure that there
a new web server for Linux that we have missed. It's a shame that iPlanet
dosen't seem to support later Linuxes.

The reason that I was looking for something other than Apache is that we
know that Apache will be supported, so I didn't want to get a lot of replies
saying use Apache.
I'd like to thank everyone for their replies, it will help me in my
with management about what to support.
