Apache Cookbook: Solutions and Examples for Apache Administration


Apache Cookbook: Solutions and Examples for Apache Administration Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There's plenty of documentation on installing and configuring the Apache web server, but where do you find help for the day-to-day stuff, like adding common modules or fine-tuning your activity logging? That's easy. The new edition of the Apache Cookbook offers you updated solutions to the problems you're likely to encounter with the new versions of Apache.

Written by members of the Apache Software Foundation, and thoroughly revised for Apache versions 2.0 and 2.2, recipes in this book range from simple tasks, such installing the server on Red Hat Linux or Windows, to more complex tasks, such as setting up name-based virtual hosts or securing and managing your proxy server. Altogether, you get more than 200 timesaving recipes for solving a crisis or other deadline conundrums, with topics including:

  • Security
  • Aliases, Redirecting, and Rewriting
  • CGI Scripts, the suexec Wrapper, and other dynamic content techniques
  • Error Handling
  • SSL
  • Performance
This book tackles everything from beginner problems to those faced by experienced users. For every problem addressed in the book, you will find a worked-out solution that includes short, focused pieces of code you can use immediately. You also get explanations of how and why the code works, so you can adapt the problem-solving techniques to similar situations.

Instead of poking around mailing lists, online documentation, and other sources, rely on the Apache Cookbook for quick solutions when you need them. Then you can spend your time and energy where it matters most.

Book News Annotation:

This "cookbook" collects time-saving recipes in one convenient place, providing 200 solutions to problems commonly faced with Apache Web Server versions 2.0 and 2.2. Every recipe comes from real-life situations, encountered either by the authors or by people who have asked for their help. Topics range from basic compilation of the source code to complex problems involving the treatment of URLs that require SSL encryption. The recipes are geared to two major platforms: UNIX (such as Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris) and Windows. There are also many recipes that have no platform-specific aspects. Most case examples of code are in the form of excerpts from scripts, rather than actual application code. Coar is responsible for fielding e-mail sent to the Apache project; his experience with that mailing list provided a foundation for this book. Bowen works on the documentation for Apache Web server. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (


Apache is far and away the most widely used Web server platform available. This book lists common problems, their solutions, and practical examples--along with an impressive collection of useful code--for webmasters, administrators, and programmers.
