Item Description

Apache Web Server Administration and e-Commerce Handbook by Scott Hawkins

The intention of this book is to serve as a broad-based tutorial and reference for the Apache Web server. The book presumes some level of familiarity with computers, but no particular networking background. Though the main discussion focuses on e-commerce, the appendices cover a variety of peripheral information, such as name resolution, TCP/IP, and regular expressions, necessary for creating a functioning Web server. In addition, such topics as electronic payment and database interaction, which are particularly important for e-commerce sites, are covered from a Web administration perspective.

The Apache Web server is the crown jewel of the open source software movement. It costs nothing to obtain, performs better than the competition, and is thus more widely used than all other Web servers combined. At this writing, 61.5 percent of all Web sites worldwide are using the Apache server. The propagation of open source software is tightly analogous to biological natural selection-the Linuxes and sendmails of the world eventually end up on the cover of Time magazine and are swallowed by the hype machine, while legions of DOS utilities slide slowly but inexorably to the /dev/null of history. Apache would not be popular if it didn't work well. Apache has another virtue not quite so common in the open source world: it is simple enough that any reasonably competent computer user can master it. God knows I'm no huge fan of Microsoft, but if you gave me a choice between bringing my mother up to speed on either Linux or Windows 2000, I'd pick Windows quicker than you could say "Thomas Penfield Jackson." This is no slur on Linux, by the way; operating systems, particularly multiuser operating systems, are hugely complex. The only way to make them accessible to the average user is to dumb them down. The collection of tasks delegated to Apache is thankfully not quite so vast. Those of you approaching Apache with little more than self-confidence and a sense of adventure will be relieved to know that the configuration and care of the server itself really isn't a particularly complex task. The trick, depending on your level of experience, will probably be to grasp the fundamental concepts of the operating system, learn the commands to make the machine do what you want it to do, and absorb the jargon. If you're already up on one or more of these topics, then you're really in for a pleasant surprise.A Brief History The Apache server is descended from the httpd server created by Rob McCool at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA). In 1995, httpd was the most popular Web server in existence, but when McCool left NCSA in 1994, development of the program was stalled. A small group of Web administrators formed the core of what came to be known as the Apache Group.
