- Full Description
Apache is the most widely used web server on the Internet today, and that comes as no surpriseits open source and therefore free of charge, not to mention gloriously extensible. And its much more secure than other web servers.
So youve picked this book up and youre wondering what exactly makes it different from all those other Apache books? There are hundreds of books about Apache; books that promise to unleash its power, provide a complete reference for it, or delve into the most miniscule corners of its functionality.
The problem is that none of them talks to the average web designer or developer. Most books on Apache are written by propellerheads for propellerheads. None of them explain how to configure Apache using plain language, giving examples that matter to youbut Apache Essentials does!
In Apache Essentials, Ill show you how to install, configure, and maintain Apache. The key features that youll use on a daily basis will be emphasized. Youll learn how to host secure (SSL) sites, optimize key Apache modules, use Apache with Perl and PHP, work with Server Side Includes (SSI), and take advantage of the information contained in log files.
By the time youre done reading this book, youll be an Apache superstar!
