Apache is far and away the most widely used web server platform in the world. This versatile server runs more than half of the world's existing web sites.

With this new third edition of Apache: The Definitive Guide, web administrators new to Apache will come up to speed quickly, and experienced administrators will find the logically organized, concise reference sections indispensable, and system programmers interested in customizing their servers will rely on the chapters on the API and Apache modules. Updated to cover the changes in Apache's latest release, 2.0, as well as Apache 1.3, this useful guide discusses how to obtain, set up, secure, modify, and troubleshoot the Apache software on both Unix and Windows systems. Dozens of clearly written examples provide the answers to the real-world issues that Apache administrators face everyday. In addition to covering the installation and configuration of mod_perl and Tomcat, the book examines PHP, Cocoon, and other new technologies that are associated with the Apache web server. Additional coverage of security and the Apache 2.0 API make Apache: The Definitive Guide, Third Edition essential documentation for the world's most popular web server.
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
"Please take as read all the usual good stuff about O'Reilly books that I have written os often before: this book has the same production values etc. etc. and I'm sure you don't want to read that all again. So what is there to say? Well not a lot really which is why you are getting all this filler. The name of the book tells it all - this really is the definitive guide to using Apache. You run apache? You need to understand it better? (The chapter on running a big web server is sound.) Get the book. The person who pays your wages can certainly afford it." - Lindsay Marshall, news@UK
