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.
