From the Back Cover

Sams Teach Yourself Apache in 24 Hours covers the installation, configuration, and ongoing administration of the Apache Web server, the most popular Internet Web server. It covers both the 1.3 and the new 2.0 versions of Apache.

Using a hands-on, task-oriented format, it concentrates on the most popular features and common quirks of the server.

The first part of the book helps the reader build, configure, and get started with Apache. After completing these chapters the reader will be able to start, stop, and monitor the Web server. He also will be able to serve both static content and dynamic content, customize the logs, and restrict access to certain parts of the Web server.

The second part of the book explains in detail the architecture of Apache and how to extend the server via third-party modules like PHP and Tomcat. It covers server performance and scalability, content management, and how to set up a secure server with SSL.

Although the title of the book is Apache 2, and it contains full information about it, I learnt from it all the basic things you need to know related to web servers. Being a complete beginner, I learnt not just about Apache, but also about what are SSL, PHP, CGI's, Proxy servers and Tomcat through the book. Everything is explained in plain english and easy to understand. Each chapter has an introductory section that makes it much easier to understand. It's like having the author by your side guiding you.

I picked up the book when moving to Red Hat 8, which includes Apache 2 by default. My knowledge of web administration is limited to Apache 1.3 and this book does a good job of explaining what has changed which is what I was looking for. The book covers everything you would expect from a beginner Apache book such as installation, configuration, logging and some others that I did not such as PHP, mod_perl and Tomcat. I only use PHP, so I cannot comment on the others. I liked the simple, no-nonsense approach of the author to the topics and you can also tell he knows his stuff.
The SSL chapter is the best one I have read on the topic.

This is an excellent book if you are interested in learning how to administer Apache based servers. It helped me get started with the Apache that came with my Red Hat Linux and to install it in my Windows laptop for testing. The book focuses on Apache 2 but it is fine for Apache 1.3, though if you run Apache on Windows it is recommended that you use Apache 2. I found the book more detailed and easier to read than the O'reilly one.
It covers installation of PHP but not how to program PHP.

Setting up my first Apache server, I found this book to be an invaluable aid. It discusses Apache's range of capabilities, explains the internal processes involved in serving Web sites, and illustrates typical configuration options. The explanations are simple, straightforward, and organized, and the writing style is encouraging. If I have any complaint, it is that I ran into more build/installation snags with several third-party Apache add-ons than the book predicted. Your mileage will no doubt vary.

So the "Sam's Teach Yourself" searies of books I have used a few times in the past to learn some tech stuff, and they have always been decently helpful.

These books can move a bit quickly and sometimes have a tendency to expect more from you than you might know, but it also covers a good range of stuff right from the beginning.

These books are set up in 24 chapters (Hour long lessons that usually do not take an hour to read to work through). This one starts right from the get go with what http is, how to request a webpage manually, what your browser actually does, and how a web server is build, then moves on to show you how apache runs and how to get to configured for yourself.

It is not always the most in depth and can go kind of fast for some people. I can see that if you have trouble retaining information, these might not be the best lessons for you, but if you can work quickly and understand things easily, these are good and easy lessons for you.

It is worth the price and better than one of those all-encompassing huge guides that are like 40[...] that really do not teach you anything, they are more just reference.

it is a good book for Java begginers. The book is easy to read and follow and has lots of sample programs. Of course you, in your aspiration to learn Java, you need to folow it with more advanced concept books. It is worth the money..
