Now in it's second edition, Apache: The Definitive Guide is a revised and improved tome which has been expanded to cover the Win32 and Unix flavours of the Apache server. Counting a member of the Apache development team as one of its authors, the new edition deals with server versions up to (and including) 1.3 giving detail on how to get hold of the source code (not necessary for the Win32 variant), compile it and latterly configure for authorisation and security.
However, getting the server up and running is one thing, administering it is quite another. Happily, the authors provide many pages of detail on subjects including setting up virtual servers, dealing with MIME types, proxies, server- side includes and more in a way which is informative, yet not too heavy on the brain. It has to be said that there's an overriding feeling the book leans towards the UNIX side of things but this in no way impedes the usefulness of the book--a big improvement on the first edition. Just for good measure a reference card containing all the information you'll ever need to know is included, together with a bonus CD containing all of the files necessary to mount Apache 1.3.3 on a Windows of Unix machine. All in all, pretty fine value for web admins and the web curious. [via]
