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.

If you're looking for a book that's very concise and to the point about web server administration concerning apache, look no further! Apache Server Bible has everything you could ever look for and like the author says in the front, if there's something you need help in, email him and he'll respond if he can. I had a problem with my configuration reading user requests and within 5 minutes (I lieth not) of sending this to him, he had responded with possible solutions (which worked). No other book have I read that had that kind of support. The author has my sincerest thanks and respect, and the book itself will always be A: on my desk and B: mentioned to anyone trying to get help with Apache.

By A Customer on 24 Mar. 1999
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be one of the best I've read in several years. It isn't so much a great book about Apache but the fact it covers so many other topics that come into play when dealing with web site/server setup and administration. Before ASB I had blundered my way through DNS setups for virtual hosted sites, now I have a rational system of setting up the entries. I had also worked out a method to handle e-mail for these virtual sites and after reading ASB I realized I had done it right plus I picked up a few extra pointers to make the e-mail work better. Perhaps the best thing about the book is Mr. Kabir's willingness to help. I had run into a problem with the wizform.cgi program. He replied to my mail quickly and got me pointed in the right direction to fix the problem. (No there wasn't a problem with the script but in the way I was trying to use it.) The down side was I found several errors that would cause the inexperienced reader (with HTTP, HTML, and Web Servers) some headaches but nothing that would have caused more than a few minutes of puzzlement. So perhaps 4-1/2 Stars. Get this book; Apache: The Definitive Guide; and a good HTML book and you are off to becoming a great Web Server Administrator.

Format: Paperback
The book is very much aimed at setting up the server and the relevant configuration files. Helpful when you are first getting started but it couldn't tell me anything I didn't find on the Apache help pages. If you want anything more, for example to write your own modules, forget it you'd be better off with the O'Reilly Definitive Guide.

By A Customer on 25 May 1999
Format: Paperback
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!

The book is not superb nor explains everything about Apache , but this book really concentrates on Apache. I've seen lots of books titled Apache Web Server but full of web tutorials, TCP/IP and even HTML reference. This book is not perfect but very satisfactory.

The book helped me get my Apache server up and running and also helped me understand the various server directives. Some of the later chapters look like they will be useful. The author was very responsive to a couple of questions I had and mentioned that he would be setting up a web site covering Linux and Apache, with Q&A, etc. This will be helpful in keeping up with the various changes that occur with new versions of Apache.

I found this book really heavy going and there was too much complex language used too soon. I'm by no means a beginner when it comes to computing, but I found this book assumed mucho knowlege about low level processing. I feel it needed more easy to read walkthroughs of how to achieve the main tasks. I hope to get to grips with it soon, otherwise I'm going to feel I wasted my money.
