"Do you learn best by example and experimentation? This book is ideal. Have your favorite editor and compiler ready-you'll encounter example code you'll want to try right away. You've picked the right book-this is sure to become the de facto standard guide to writing Apache modules."
-Rich Bowen, coauthor, Apache Administrators Handbook, Apache Cookbook, and The Definitive Guide to Apache mod_rewrite
"A first-rate guide to getting the most out of Apache as a modular application platform-sure to become a must-read for any Apache programmer, from beginner to experienced professional. It builds up carefully and meticulously from the absolute basics, while including chapters on everything from the popular Apache DBD Framework to best practices, security, and debugging."

The Only Comprehensive Guide to Developing Apache 2.x Modules and Applications
Apache is more than the world's most popular Web server-it's also an extraordinarily powerful and extensible development platform. Now, ApacheTutor.org's Nick Kew has writtenThe Apache Modules Book, the first start-to-finish, example-rich guide for every developer who wants to make the most of Apache.
Kew begins with detailed, accessible introductions to Apache's architecture and API, then illuminates all the techniques you'll need, from request processing through code security. He brings together the best of both worlds: powerful C-based techniques for accomplishing tasks Perl or PHP can't handle, implemented with tools that deliver all the productivity you'd expect from higher-level languages. Utilizing realistic code samples, Kew introduces techniques documented in no other book-and, often, nowhere else at all.
ApacheTutor.org contains code examples from the book, all designed for easy use and integration into existing applications.
Nick Kew is a leading developer of Apache applications, many of which can be found at his company's site, http://apache.webthing.com. He is a member of the Apache Web server core development team and of the Apache Software Foundation. He is active in both user and developer support, and gives tutorials and presentations at relevant conferences such as ApacheCon. He created and maintains http://www.apachetutor.org, and writes on Apache topics for a range of leading online publications.
I was going to title my review "THE Definitive Reference" - but someone beat me to it.
I came into Apache modules completely confused. Read more
So, you cannot do copy-paste. You can't zoom it. The code is not readable on Kindle. It is a little bit better on PC, but still hard to read.Published on December 26, 2012 by Qing Xu
Well written with enough good examples to get you started. Nick is a current apache contributor and really understands the architecture. The section on debugging is invaluable. Read morePublished on February 27, 2011 by S. Podell
I have no idea why this book got consistantly high ratings. I can only surmise that the people who have used this book are already Apache geeks. Read morePublished on April 11, 2010 by Mark D. Schaeffer
