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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
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.
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.
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!
