The combination of Linux and Apache has long been the most popular Web server platform on the Internet, but it has also had the reputation of being difficult to set up and administer. Previous books on the subject either 'talk down' to the reader, explaining where the ON button is and how a diskette is used, or assume a number of years of general Unix experience as a prerequisite.

Linux's popularity continues to grow due to the recent releases of mature desktop versions by several companies. In combination with increasing levels of frustration due to Microsoft's continuing security problems and privacy, licensing and pricing issues, more and more Windows Web server administrators are looking at Linux as a healthy alternative.

This book assumes a basic familiarity with the concepts and functionality of a Web server from the point of view of a Windows admin, and shows that person how to build and administer a Linux-based Web server from scratch. The reader will learn the basic installation and configuration of a Linux computer specifically as a Web server, avoiding the extra bells and whistles that aren't needed.

The book will then examine options for management of the server functions, and show the reader how to set up a web site, offering alternatives for architecture and discussing both static and dynamic content. Finally, the book covers a variety of security issues, from basic server lockdown to tracking access attempts and implementing firewalls.

Businesses today depend on their Web servers more than ever, and increasingly need the stability and security that have been Linux's trademark benefits for years. This book will show them how to set up that server quickly and reliably.
