No. While true that some users may believe there is only one HTTP server, superuser should not add to the confusion. httpd is a generic name for the daemon handling HTTP requests. Before reading this ...

Tag synonym request: diskonkey -> usb-flash-drive

Agreed. diskonkey is somewhat useless and unclear compared to your other tag. I have merged and synonymised the tags. Only 6 questions had the tag diskonkey so it's no big loss.
