The power and flexibility of Apache have made it the most popular web server on the Internet. Now, after three years of development, the Apache Software Foundation has released Apache 2.0.
With the introduction of OS-specific Multi-Processing Modules (MPMs) and the Apache Portable Runtime, Apache 2.0 runs on more platforms with greater ease. Apache 2.0 brings a significant revision of the Apache build system, a more powerful architecture, and numerous improvements and additions to modules and directives. This book provides a comprehensive guide to all that is new in Apache 2.0, together with the most recent enhancements to Apache 1.3. New capabilities, support for embedded scripting, performance tuning, monitoring, and server security are presented in focused, easily applied sections. What does this book cover?
- The Apache 2.0 web server, including upgrades and updates from Apache 1.3
- New features in Apache 1.3, and migration of Apache 1.3 servers to Apache 2.0
- Installing Apache from a binary distribution or building from source for UNIX and Windows
- Delivering dynamic content efficiently and securely with CGI and FastCGI
- Virtual hosting with Apache - simple, complex, and en masse
- Proxying and caching, fault tolerance and clustering, and benchmarking of Apache servers
- Monitoring and securing Apache servers
- Extending Apache with third-party modules for Perl, Python, PHP, Tcl, Java, Ruby, and WebDAV

A series of Apache 1.x products got the world through the Internet economy bubble. Now, Apache 2.0 is here for the long-haul work of making Internet businesses profitable over time. Apache 2.0 represents significant improvements in functionality and ease of use, and Professional Apache 2.0 shows you how to capitalize on them. If you've been unable to glean the information you need from the online documentation, or if you want something more substantial than a URL to refer to when there's a problem, you'll be happy to have this book on your reference bookshelf. A lot of what's here is as relevant to older versions of Apache as to version 2.0, and the new stuff gets the in-depth attention it deserves.
The work of Peter Wainwright and his team (Wainwright wrote several of Wrox Press's well-regarded Perl books) is typical of the Wrox approach to subjects. Different people wrote various sections, and they've all been edited into the "guided tour" format (let's try this, then this, and now look at this...). That style works well for teaching and documenting Apache, largely because most of the sections include a balance of explanatory text, command summaries, and configuration file listings. The style seems a bit scattershot from time to time, but it's easy to zero in on what you need via the index. --David Wall
Topics covered: How to set up, use, and adjust the version 2.0 release of Apache Web server. Much of the authorial team's work deals with setting up Apache to minimize security holes and maximize performance, but other sections deal with the ins and outs of new features like IPv6 address management and Multi-Processing Modules (MPMs).From the Publisher :
This book is for the professional who wants to either set up an Apache web server for the first time or upgrade an existing server to Apache 2.0. Professional Apache 2.0 covers the information needed to build, configure, and extend Apache to suit your requirements - Apache the way you want it. With the help of extensive examples, web server administrators and developers will be able to apply Apache 2.0 to real-world problems.
