Book Description

Apache is far and away the most widely used web server platform in the world, running on Windows NT as well as Unix and other platforms. It powers about half of the world's existing web sites and is still increasing market share. Apache also forms the basis of a number of commercial web servers, such as IBM HTTP Server powered by Apache and C2Net's Stronghold.Apache is at the leading edge of web server development with many new technologies being implemented first. Apache has a flexible architecture that allows independent developers to add their own functionality by way of modules, written either in C or, with the advent of mod_perl, in Perl.The Apache Pocket Reference, a companion volume to Writing Apache Modules with Perl and C and Apache: The Definitive Guide, 2nd Edition, covers Apache 1.3.12. It provides a complete overview of the command-line options, configuration directives, and modules, and covers Apache support utilities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect volume for the price. Oct. 9 2001
A large system of configuration commands and syntax is a useful and powerful tool for allowing people to easily control complex pieces of computer software.
Large configuration files have one major problem; you tend not to look at them often enough to get the language and syntax down pat. You find yourself making too many tiny errors in command name or syntax and struggle with one window editing the file and one or more windows open displaying the documentation.
With Apache I have this problem in spades. The configuration system may be well designed and the syntax as easy as possible, but most people will still struggle to keep every detail in their head. I know what I need to do, have a fair idea how to do it, but the details elude me.
That's where this little volume comes in immensely handy. I have several of O'Reilly's pocket references and find the PHP, Apache and Perl ones never stray far from my computer. This one provides a wealth of reference information packed into a small, inexpensive little volume. It has enough information about the exact name and sytax of the Apache configuration directives that I donï¿t need to go to a larger book or delve into the manual.
Oh, and for those that want this volume to lay flat. I ran my copy through a paper cutter and trimmed the spine off. After punching holes in the pages I then had a loose leaf version that allowed me to add my own pages of notes in various spots and lays perfectly flat. It only took a few minutes. Sorry, O'Reilly - but it is more useful if it can lay flat and being able to add notes is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally ... just what an Apache admin needs July 12 2000
I own several pocket references on various topics, but this is the first one that I can say is truly helpful every time I've opened it. I no longer have to dredge up archived configuration files or hunt things down from other machines to find the syntax for an option or a trick I once used. This book is more than just bullet points and mnemonics; each command or configuration option has enough detail to set you on the right track if not actually provide you with the answers you were looking for. It certainly won't teach you how to administer Apache, but if you find yourself venturing to the Apache Project web site for reference very often, this book can save you those trips.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good info, good price, ok binding. May 21 2001
For material that's mostly already online, this book is a good investment. I get really tired of window-switching references, and sometimes I like to sit away from the computer while I'm looking up stuff on directive syntax or whatever. For that, this book is worth the price.
I'd still like a more suitable binding for a small book with a font chosen for density. Lord, won't you make me said book so it will lay flat? That would make this dealie a five-star pick for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never leaves my side Nov. 29 2001
I, incredulously, bought this book not expecting to refer to it because I know everything ( ;-P ). I have found that it a most invaluable resource. If you know (and love) Apache, this is the synopsis you need sitting on the left hand side of your keyboard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up-to-date! Oct. 30 2000
This little book covers the latest version of Apache, and was packed with info for its size. If you're already familiar with other releases of Apache, then this is the perfect book for you - and all you'll ever need!
