5.0 out of 5 stars Well Documented and a good resource, 15 April 2003
This review is from: Sams Teach Yourself Apache 2 in 24 Hours (Sams Teach Yourself) (Paperback)
I had very limited knowledge of apache when I first started reading this book. Basically I was just using apache 2 to run a home network website with static pages, but this book has totally changed all that. It has been written for the complete novice but puts through advanced information into and easy to understand format. Although some sections do require a second reading to get the idea clearly understood, but that is through trying to cram so much information into a short amount of time, in personal use.
The chapters are well organised and well formatted from start to finish and precisely documented. You can easily tell that the author understands, and enjoys his subject and is an experienced teacher. He is able to give you the building blocks upon which to base the next chapter upon.
For example, the first two chapters are essential for understanding the basics of how, not only the apache server runs but how information is passed between browsers and the server itself.
It goes on to delve deep into information providing very good coverage of virtual hosting, using apache as a proxy server and numerous other interesting subjects with mod_perl, tom cat and documenting various GUIs for apache.
The only downside I have noted for this book, and its not really worth losing a star over, is the lack of documentation of windows on certain subjects which interested me, such as virtual hosting. I found it was more geared towards linux users (though they are the main users of apache) but it would be nice in the future to maybe help those in the windows enviroment a bit more.
All in all an excellent book and a book that will help through any problems with apach web server
