Good for the absolute beginner, but for the experienced administrator may not be the greatest option 12 Jan 2010
By Michael Matonis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
First and foremost this book is highly accessible, easy to read, and it's information is relevant, on-point and accurate for its time. Although written during a time where Web Server administration's pedagogy was in its infancy the book does an all around good job in instructing how HTTP works, the types of web servers and how to set up IIS, Apache and other various services such as DNS to get a webserver up and running on the internet along instructions and the science behind various extensions and modules, but lacks contents that digresses deeper into common tasks you may have to do as an administrator.

It's a good book for beginners but to someone who is more experienced with web server administration may look for a book that covers more administrative tasks that you may want to do.

Good for the beginner, but the more experienced administrators may look elsewhere.

Good, but... 4 Feb 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a good book, 4 years ago... There are several good examples on how the Web Server Construct works and is a very good book for the beginner, however if you are an advanced user, try something else other than this book.

This book is way too old to be of much use, but it was a good buy since I needed it for class. It also covers Microsoft IIS, so if you're like most Web server admins and want to run GNU/Linux, half of the book will probably be a waste of your time. The other half will teach you some technologies that are several years old, but maybe we can use those as a basis for today's applications. It's also Red Hat specific which can differ from Debian in terms of where the config files are located, what they're called, and what the package manager's commands are.
Pretty good 3 Mar 2013

This is a pretty good book for those looking for an introduction to the installation and maintenance of web servers.
It explains the basics and goes on to show you how to install and manage an Apache installation.

I don't use it anymore, but it's not bad.

Now I am taking classes of Web Server Adm. this book is a very good complement as master guide when we are doing the lab, and homework.
