[Zope] what advantage does zope has over apache (help)

Apache's strength is that it serves static content reliably and at high
volumes. It is also quite good at handing off requests to other
systems. By itself, Apache doesn't really have any programming
framework... though you can certainly load in stuff like PHP.
If you think about Apache that way, Zope isn't really a replacement for
Apache. Think of Zope as a replacement for PHP/ASP/JSP. Zope is a
full-featured app framework, as opposed to a file-oriented scripting
language. Zope is highly object oriented and provides security that is
strong, flexible *and* intuitive. And you can program it in Python, which
is its own reward. :-)
Though it's possible to run Zope *instead* of Apache, it's quite common to
run Apache as a reverse proxy for Zope. Both systems can serve HTTP
requests, but they really aren't in competition with each other. I'd
encourage you to look at Zope knowing that you will still be able to
leverage your knowledge of Apache.
