[Cybrid Technology]

Pro Apache 3rd Edition is a complete reference to the Apache 2 web server. It presents Apache configuration from a task-oriented rather than feature-oriented perspective and anticipates the questions a web server administrator might ask. The book considers and contrasts multiple approaches, while examples illustrate how to combine different Apache features together. Detailed coverage is provided for building Apache from source and installing Apache on both Windows and Unix platforms, with notes on the differences between Apache 1.3 and Apache 2. For those who do not immediately plan to migrate to Apache 2, this new edition also caters to administrators running the latest releases of Apache 1.3.

While the book contains substantial updates and improved examples, and has changed publisher, it keeps as closely as possible to the structure of the first and second editions, so those familiar with Professional Apache and Professional Apache 2.0 should have no trouble finding what they want in Pro Apache 3rd Edition.

This book was previously available as "Professional Apache 2.0" (2nd edition) and "Professional Apache" (1st edition).
