From Library Journal
Most web sites run on Apache servers, so the recent release of Apache 2.0 means that administrators need to brush up on their skills. While this book aims to serve both upgraders and newbies, it will best help those with some previous background. Administrators will appreciate explanations and comparisons that show not only how to configure and manage the server but also the reasons to take certain paths for security, compatibility, or ease of use. Recommended for larger public and academic libraries.

From the Back Cover
The Apache Web server runs more than 55 percent of the sites on the Internet, making it the number one Web server, and more widely used than all other Web server combined. Apache 2.0 is the first majore release of Apache since its inception, and represents a complete change in Apache architecture--one requiring that administrators and developers learn new procedures and techniques for configuring and maintaining the Apache server.
Apache Administrator's Handbookis a practical hands-on guide to the installation, configuration, and administration of the Apache Web server. It will show you how to build and configure Apache with the features and modules you need, how to seucre the server, how to interpret log files, and how to tune the server's performance. While aimed primarily at Apache server administrators, the book also contains information for developers interested in building dynamic Web sites on top of the Apache server using either CGI or mod_perl.
