Here are the common types of attack faced by web servers most of the time:

Denial of service
Any of the network, web-server, or application-based attacks that result in denial of service, a condition in which a system is overloaded and can no longer respond normally.

Exploitation of configuration errors
These errors are our own fault. Surprisingly, they happen more often than you might think.

Exploitation of Apache vulnerabilities
Unpatched or unknown problems in the Apache web server.

Exploitation of application vulnerabilities
Unpatched or unknown problems in deployed web applications.

Attacks through other services
This is a "catch-all" category for all other unmitigated problems on the same network as the web server. For example, a vulnerable MySQL database server running on the same machine and open to the public.

Thanks...
