Book Description

1 Sep 2002 1555582648 978-1555582647 annotated edition
"Whether you're an experienced webmaster new to OpenVMS or an old OpenVMS hand new to webservers, this book will save you time and help you do your job better. The book points out similarities and differences between Unix and VMS, contains a management-friendly explanation of VMS's suitability for 24x7 operation, explains web concepts like authentication and access control models clearly (including honest discussion of drawbacks and weaknesses). Clear examples show how to configure each of the three webservers to accomplish specific goals, and comparisons will help you choose which server to run. If you're using or considering using a VMS webserver, this book is for you. OpenVMS with Apache, OSU and WASD also discusses specific tasks, such as how to port CGI programs from other operating systems, and gives working examples in PERL, Python, and DCL. One chapter also covers database connectivity for VMS-based CGI programs; Use OpenVMS to provide reliable, full-featured web service for your business; Find information not available anywhere else for OpenVMS, whose unbeatable reliability makes it the web server of choice for institutions that can't afford downtime for their websites; Learn from numerous examples and step-by-step procedures how to do the same task in different servers"

Product Description

Review

" OpenVMS with Apache, OSU and WASD is required reading for the OpenVMS web administrator, novice or veteran. For those who manage more than one type of these web servers or who are migrating from one web server to another, this book is indispensable."-Richard Barry, OpenVMS Apache Project Leader "As the author of the WASD package I've been reviewing Alan's book and it looks good. Alan's grasp of OSU (he is an OSUser after all) and even Apache is probably better than that of WASD, which itself is excellent. More importantly he generates a synthesis of the material, placing it in context and drawing out the important aspects of a topic." -Mark Daniel, Author of the WASD Webserver "This is the reference book that users of the OSU web server have long sought."-David Jones, Author of the DECthreads Webserver "...an excellent and in-depth look at these three web servers with respect to running on an OpenVMS platform. The book provides an amazing amount of information to help choose the right web server for your system, and then proceeds to include some of the nitty gritty details on how to set that server up and manage it...There is enough useful and technical information in this book to make it a valuable asset for any OpenVMS administrator looking to run a web server." - Bill Catambay, mac-guild.org

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for OpenVMS web servers 24 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
The style - to include in each section the information for all three web server technologies - threw me a little at first, but after that it was plain sailing. I was looking to get a WASD server up and running, and I would definitely have struggled with some of the details without the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Practical for todays hobbyist 25 Oct 2013
By kmferraro - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great insight and howto for todays OpenVMS hobbyist that wants to run a VAMP stack. All three servers are reviewed well. The HP Apache version is a bit dated, but hey, so is VMS (c'mon admit it already - its old, but its fantastic).
