Review:

To design and maintain Web sites on the very popular Apache Web Server on Unix or Linux, beginners need to know a little of this and a little of that. Understanding Web Development starts from square one, with an extremely concise series of tutorials and hands-on exercises that teaches the skills needed to run Apache Web sites successfully. Aimed at the novice Webmaster, this book contains the essentials of Unix administration and HTML.

The most notable thing about this book is its simplicity. The author, a longtime teacher of Web development, has condensed essential administrative and HTML tutorials into very short sections and simple hands-on exercises. These tutorials are the real reason to buy this book. Master common Unix commands and basic HTML design firsthand with a series of easy-to-handle tasks. The book covers only the most essential information for the would-be Webmaster, such as using ftp and telnet for remote administration, common Unix shell commands, and an introductory-level HTML tutorial. One standout chapter shows how to restrict permissions on Web content for certain users on Apache (using the .htaccess configuration file), and how to add password protection to Web pages. Changing permissions is an essential administrative task, and the books explains just what you need to know.

Unix administration can be daunting to the novice. Instead of trying to be comprehensive, Understanding Web Development gives the bare essentials to get up and running with Web administration and simple Web design. It's a great choice for a first book about what's available on the Apache/Unix Web platform. --Richard Dragan
