"Apache is the most popular web server in use today. In a recent survey by Netcraft, 59.69% of all web servers ran Apache. Apache administration will be at least helpful, if not necessary, in future job markets. With its flexibility, performance, and purchase price (It's free.), it is easy to see why this web server is powering more than half of the web sites on the internet. "Apache Web Server Administration" by Charles Aulds answers many questions about Apache and starts at the beginning, where it should."

"Apache Web Server Administration" is a great way to get started, or even further your knowledge of Apache. This book has wonderful examples of configurations that make sense and are to the point. This book encompasses most everything that your average webmaster may run into, including Perl, Python, SSL, SSI, Virtual hosting, add-ons, and many other features. It did not take me very long to realize this book is one of the more useful and informative Apache books out there."

"The first section gives the reader an introduction to Apache, how it works, and what you can use it for. I found this section very comforting, and reading it should leave more interest than intimidation about what Apache can do. A basic explanation of the Internet, the World Wide Web, and how all of it works together to serve the millions of individual websites is included. This section ends with a nice comparison of the major web servers, and the features that are unique to each of them."
