'Co-authored by Ben Laurie, one of the elite of programmers who code Apache, this really is the definitive text on how to get and use the Apache Web Server.... This is a clear road map for anyone considering setting up an Apache web server and an indispensable reference for all Apache users.' - Pat Crawford, Computer Bulletin, May 2000 'I have no reason to doubt its claim as the definitive guide and the 2nd edition is probably justified. If your intention is to use Apache, then Lauries' book is probably not just definitive, but essential. It takes the reader through from the design of the simplest possible 'hello world' site to a complex application involving on-line forms etc.' - Joe McCool, Cvu, January 2000

Ben Laurie is a member of the core Apache Group and has made his living as a programmer since 1978. Peter Laurie, Ben's father, is a freelance journalist who has written several computer books. At one time, he was the editor of Practical Computing magazine.
