About this book

Apache is the most widely used web server on the Internet today, and that comes as no surprise—it's open source and therefore free of charge, not to mention gloriously extensible. And it's much more secure than other web servers.

So you've 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 you—but Apache Essentials does!

In Apache Essentials, I'll show you how to install, configure, and maintain Apache. The key features that you'll use on a daily basis will be emphasized. You'll 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 you're done reading this book, you'll be an Apache superstar!
