Chapter 15. The Personal Web Server > Upward Mobility with the Apache Web Serve...

Upward Mobility with the Apache Web Server

Apache is the most flexible and easily expanded Web server in the known universe. Hundreds of books describe configuring, fine-tuning, and enhancing Apache, and the source code for hundreds of Apache extensions, loadable modules, and related applications are readily available on the Web. Chapter 13 provided an overview of the names and location of the configuration and log files used by Apache, as well as the directory structure that the Apache server exports over the Web from Mac OS X systems. This section provides some general information about how to turbocharge Apache, and some of the best sites on the Web for obtaining information about Apache, Apache extensions, and Web-based applications that you can use on your Web site.

Going to the Internet to find information about extending and configuring the Apache Web server is much like the old saying, “Physician, heal thyself!” except no irony is involved this time. The Web is clearly the best source for obtaining information about configuring, updating, and extending Apache, plus a tremendous number of entertaining war stories and “don’t try this at home” tales. The Web is also the fastest and most immediate way of locating and downloading up-to-date Apache modules, CGI scripts, and even Web-based applications to help you administer Apache. (If that isn’t a good definition of recursion, I don’t know what is!)
