Small and efficient. Often faster to lookup simple options than going to the online documentation.

HASH(0x9ead5054) out of 5 stars Will Have a Permanent Spot on My Desk Jan. 1 2009
By David Cross - Published on
Format: Paperback
There's no question that Apache powers the World Wide Wide. It runs over half of the world's web sites. If you work in the web industry then there's every chance that you'll have to deal with Apache at some point. Like many people, I don't consider myself a webmaster, but I run several web sites using Apache so I need to know how to get the most out of it.

Over the years, I have bought several books about Apache. They tend to get read once and then left to gather dust on the bookshelf. I never really need an in-depth knowledge of Apache, but I often need to know all about the one feature that I need to solve my current problem. Usually this involves a lot of Googling, but now I think I'll have this book on my desk and it will safe me a lot of time.

This book does exactly what the title implies. It is a complete (but concise) reference to Apace. In particular, most of the book is taken up with descriptions of Apache's myriad configuration options. This material all uses a standard layout which makes it easy to find and understand exactly the information that you need. One particularly nice touch is a key at the top of each entry telling you which contexts a configuration option can be used in. Never again will I have an excuse for putting an option in a .htaccess file when it only works in a direcotry context.

There is a lot of information packed into this small book. No space is wasted cramming the data in. But it's not too dense to be unusable. The information is always clear and easy to follow.

If you're a part-time Apache webmaster like me, then I think you'll find this book very useful.

HASH(0x9ead545c) out of 5 stars Good Reference July 17 2011

This will explain every directive in httpd.conf and it is a small book, so this is quite useful if you work a lot with apache.

A lot of bang for the buck.

HASH(0x9ead5264) out of 5 stars great concise reference May 28 2013

good book for getting exactly the details without instruction around it. good choice if already proficient in apache but needing cliff notes at times.
HASH(0x9ead5498) out of 5 stars Good Tool for Apache Configuration May 13 2015
By Michael Gautier - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Pretty good. Helped me in a pinch. That was the true test. I was putting up a web application in ASP.NET/C#/Mono on Ubuntu and this book helped me solve problems in integrating Mono and Apache. I would have preferred a different way of expressing the information, but the book works. You do want to take your time with it at first.
