Now, Apache web professionals have a single source for authoritative information on every Apache installation decision, command line option, configuration directive, add-on module, and Internet-based information resource they need to know -- both for Apache 1.x and the brand-new 2.0 release. Apache Core Development Team member Ralf Engelschall covers everything Web administrators need to know to get results and solve problems with Apache. He begins with detailed coverage of Apache's functionality and program architecture, including all standard Apache modules. He reviews building the Apache package from source, walking through a typical Apache installation step-by-step. Next, Engelschall provides a detailed reference to all Apache Autoconf-style Interface (APACI) options -- many of which he originally created -- as well as special issues such as configuring the Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) facility. The book covers Apache's run-time configuration, introducing configuration files and contexts, and providing a complete reference to all configuration directives associated with standard Apache modules. You'll find a full chapter on Apache command line options, especially useful for startup and restart situations; references to CGI/1.1 variables, Server Side Include (SSI) variables, and more. Finally, Engelschall offers a detailed guide to Apache resources and references on the Internet, designed to help Web professionals find answers to virtually any question.
