Revision of "Linux Apache Web Server Administration" is Worth Owning

Dave Aiello wrote, "I just picked up the second edition of
Linux Apache Web Server Administration
by Charles Aulds. This is part of the Craig Hunt Linux Library and its a worthy companion to first edition. It basically updates the subject matter of the book so that it is appropriate for Apache 2.0, where the previous version focused on Apache 1.3. It also adds more content about SSL, and new content about management GUIs like Comanche and Webmin."

"It's important to note that the first edition of the book is still a better reference for Apache 1.3 than the new edition. A lot of low level changes have been made in Apache 2.0, and I personally found myself spinning my wheels when I tried to use the new edition while making configuration changes to an Apache 1.3 server."

"I'm setting out to add SSL functionality to an Apache server on my own today. If I'm successful, this will save my client considerable money over commercial alternatives like Apache Stronghold from Red Hat. If I'm successful, the $40 or $50 I spent on the second edition of this book will seem like peanuts."
