Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

More than 50 percent of all web servers are running on "free" Apache software. The software is very good, and this is exactly the type of book users will need after they have downloaded it and are starting to try to set up their servers. An advanced beginner can use this book and the Apache software to get a server up very quickly. The CD-ROM offers plenty of tools and accessories.

I bought this book based on the great reviews here at Amazon. I don't have a clue why reviewers here thought it was so good. I should have known better and bought the O'Reilly book to start.
Most of the text consists of dry run throughs of various configuration settings - much of which probably came right from the online Apache manual. There were many errors. And, contrary to reviewers who claimed the author was open for questions, when I sent email asking about possible errata, the email was returned with an invalid address. The author's web site is also gone.
I also was unhappy that there was next to nothing about Java servlets and Apache.
The O'Reilly book got so-so reviews, but I can't imagine how it can be worse than this one.

Format: Paperback
This is a 600-page tome that gives you just enough information to make you very dangerous, and a bunch of non-sensical dialog that could have been left out. The book is also full of embarrassing errors and glaring contradictions. My favorite, in the mod_perl section is, "...when using mod_perl to run CGI scripts you cannot use ScriptAlias" followed very shortly by "You should also have a ScriptAlias directive..." The author probably knows a lot about Apache, but unfortunately is ineffective at teaching, a drawback particularly for novices reading his book. Too much is left out of this book, and too much is erroneous for you to put your put your faith in it. Try a more professional outfit, like O'Reilly's Apache: The Definitive Guide.

My requirements: Apache+SSL+PHP
This book does cover some fundamental concepts but provides too few examples (especially in the areas of installation and getting SSL up and running). I had to refer to the website more often than the book.
Good, but not good enough.

I am using this book to implement a Perl web application using mod_perl on a Linux box - the other book I am using is O'Reilly's "Writing Apache Modules". So far, I have found most everything I needed between those two books. It is very helpful to have a book dedicated to the Apache Server, nothing more and nothing less.
If I would understand Regular Expressions better than I do, I actually would have found everything I needed - that's when I sent an email to the author, who answered me first in a meeting break and then again in his lunch break ... wow.
One little thing: I almost would have bought this book in a bookstore before I actually bought it from Amazon. The reason I didn't back then was that it says "Covers Windows 95 and Windows NT Platforms" on the cover - it should read "Covers UNIX/Linux and Windows 95/NT"! The book covers a lot of UNIX!

This book jumps around from trying to teach novice stuff to assuming the reader is about as tech saavy as the author. He might be tech saavy but he is not a good teacher. I am still trying to find a good Apache guide. Maybe best to just bug my friends.

I've read about 3/4 of this book and found it easy to understand and helpful. But I wanted to mention another book, Professional Apache (Wrox, September 1999), which for some reason, doesn't show up on any amazon searches. I'm relatively new to programming, so I'm not able to evaluate all the details of Professional apache, but it is more up-to-date and (in my mind) easier to understand. And very comprehensive.

The book helped me get my Apache server up and running and also helped me understand the various server directives. Some of the later chapters look like they will be useful. The author was very responsive to a couple of questions I had and mentioned that he would be setting up a web site covering Linux and Apache, with Q&A, etc. This will be helpful in keeping up with the various changes that occur with new versions of Apache.
