Peter Wainwright's book provides web server administrators and ISPs with the information they need to apply Apache to real world problems, using real examples, without bogging them down in excessive detail about every configuration directive.The key theme is 'Apache the way you want it' - through extensive examples, this book gives you the information you need to build, configure and extend Apache to suit your requirements.

With comprehensive coverage of the many issues a Web server administrator faces, Professional Apache is a terrific resource for those looking to implement the popular open-source Web server. This title covers installation, configuration, and customization of the Apache Web server.

Apache devotee Peter Wainwright dishes up plenty of tips for making the most of Apache. He begins with a couple of introductory chapters that cover some of the basic networking concepts of the Internet and an overview of the Apache server. Readers who have experience with other Web servers should be able to get up to speed with Apache here without a problem.

The text covers the various configuration files that determine Apache's personality, illustrating how to achieve particular goals with small snippets of code. The author goes far beyond this, however, using examples of how to configure Apache to manage multiple sites, monitor the server's performance, apply security, and extend the product with several third-party add-on modules.

There aren't any fluffy elements to this book's format. It is entirely composed of detailed information that is most often presented in short, easily digestible chunks with meaningful headings, and it finishes off with a series of appendices that include a number of critical lists such as available modules and directives. Professional Apache is a very useful administration tool, indeed. --Stephen W. Plain

Topics covered: TCP/IP and HTTP overview, installation and build procedures, server configuration, aliases, redirection, CGI implementation, virtual hosting, performance optimization, security, mod_perl, PHP, and Jserv.

From the Publisher:

This is the first book to cover Apache versions 1.3.6 and 1.3.9 and the first book to cover them in such an accessible, experience based style.
