Apache Desktop Reference

Apache Desktop Reference

Free eBook “Apache Desktop Reference” by Ralf S. Engelschall. A compact reference featuring information on every aspect of Apache functionality, installation, configuration, and operation. Includes a brief introduction to the history and evolution of the Internet, HTTP, the Web, and Apache. Also reviews Apache architecture and discusses Apache’s source code.


The purpose of this book is to provide a concise but, fairly complete reference to the various Apache knobs and levers with which the webmaster is confronted at compile time, conguration time, and runtime. Thus the audience of this book consists of webmasters who are already familiar with Apache, but who need a reference on a daily basis. The book does not purport to explain Apache or to describe all referenced material in great detail. Instead, it serves as a companion to the various Apache tutorial-style books on the market. As a result, the book does not cover special topics like existing third-party modules, optimization of Apache under runtime, or use of Apache under non-UNIX platforms. If you are interested in those topics, consult one of the tutorial-style books.
