"Many books have been written to cover several aspects of the Apache web server. However, Professional Apache does a good job at fully explaining various aspects of Apache more thoroughly than many other books. The book starts with a very comprehensive introduction to TCP/IP and HTTP, then moves to Apache installation, build procedures and the server configuration. Then, the text progresses to CGI implementation, virtual hosting, performance optimization and security. It provides a thorough coverage of the many issues a web server administrator faces. A nice feature of the book is the usage of examples to show how to configure Apache to manage multiple sites, monitor the server's performance, apply security and extend the product with several third-party add-on modules."

"Professional Apache consists of 11 chapters and 10 appendices. ... The appendices at the end of the book cover the following subjects: Apache related RFCs, lists of several other web servers, the Apache license, environment variables, server side includes and directives, regular expressions, third-party modules, HTTP headers and status codes."

"Professional Apache will answer all the questions you may have concerning the Apache web server. It is a very good and interesting book for anybody who needs to get the most out of the Apache web server. I highly recommend reading it."
