Book Description

June 26 1998 Bible
Over the last three years, Apache has quickly distinguished itself as one of the fastest and most efficient Web servers around. No wonder over half the worlds Internet-based Web administrators use it today. If youre less than satisfied with your current servers performance, perhaps you should consider switching to Apache, too. Need more information? Apache Server Bible is the perfect place to start. Regardless of your Web site administration experience (or lack thereof), Apache Server Bible can help get your server up and running in no time. The extensive step-by-step instructions and real-world examples provide a fundamental understanding of Apache and walk you through every important phase, from installing Apache and customizing it to producing multi-host Web networks and building virtual Web sites.

Open the CD-ROM and youll find a wide array of essential resources, including the server code, binary distributions for Apache Server and Perl, and several utilities such as MOMSpider, Wwwstat, CGIWrap, and ePerl. There are also evaluation copies of Wusage 6 and WebTrends Professional Suite.

Product Description

From Library Journal

More than 50 percent of all web servers are running on "free" Apache software. The software is very good, and this is exactly the type of book users will need after they have downloaded it and are starting to try to set up their servers. An advanced beginner can use this book and the Apache software to get a server up very quickly. The CD-ROM offers plenty of tools and accessories.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dry lists of configurations settings, a lot of errors. Aug. 30 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book based on the great reviews here at Amazon. I don't have a clue why reviewers here thought it was so good. I should have known better and bought the O'Reilly book to start.
Most of the text consists of dry run throughs of various configuration settings - much of which probably came right from the online Apache manual. There were many errors. And, contrary to reviewers who claimed the author was open for questions, when I sent email asking about possible errata, the email was returned with an invalid address. The author's web site is also gone.
I also was unhappy that there was next to nothing about Java servlets and Apache.
The O'Reilly book got so-so reviews, but I can't imagine how it can be worse than this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Find something better Jan. 16 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a 600-page tome that gives you just enough information to make you very dangerous, and a bunch of non-sensical dialog that could have been left out. The book is also full of embarrassing errors and glaring contradictions. My favorite, in the mod_perl section is, "...when using mod_perl to run CGI scripts you cannot use ScriptAlias" followed very shortly by "You should also have a ScriptAlias directive..." The author probably knows a lot about Apache, but unfortunately is ineffective at teaching, a drawback particularly for novices reading his book. Too much is left out of this book, and too much is erroneous for you to put your put your faith in it. Try a more professional outfit, like O'Reilly's Apache: The Definitive Guide.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite enough Oct. 17 2000
By Robert Corley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My requirements: Apache+SSL+PHP
This book does cover some fundamental concepts but provides too few examples (especially in the areas of installation and getting SSL up and running). I had to refer to the website more often than the book.
Good, but not good enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful Book and Author May 25 1999
By Gerd Kortemeyer - Published on Amazon.com
I am using this book to implement a Perl web application using mod_perl on a Linux box - the other book I am using is O'Reilly's "Writing Apache Modules". So far, I have found most everything I needed between those two books. It is very helpful to have a book dedicated to the Apache Server, nothing more and nothing less.
If I would understand Regular Expressions better than I do, I actually would have found everything I needed - that's when I sent an email to the author, who answered me first in a meeting break and then again in his lunch break ... wow.
One little thing: I almost would have bought this book in a bookstore before I actually bought it from Amazon. The reason I didn't back then was that it says "Covers Windows 95 and Windows NT Platforms" on the cover - it should read "Covers UNIX/Linux and Windows 95/NT"! The book covers a lot of UNIX!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good; assumes too much Sept. 30 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book jumps around from trying to teach novice stuff to assuming the reader is about as tech saavy as the author. He might be tech saavy but he is not a good teacher. I am still trying to find a good Apache guide. Maybe best to just bug my friends.
