Excellent for beginners and worthwhile to buy!
Although the title of the book is Apache 2, and it contains full information about it, I learnt from it all the basic things you need to know related to web servers. Being a complete beginner, I learnt not just about Apache, but also about what are SSL, PHP, CGI's, Proxy servers and Tomcat through the book. Everything is explained in plain english and easy to understand. Each chapter has an introductory section that makes it much easier to understand. It's like having the author by your side guiding you.

Not a good book for beginners
This book covers a wide scope of Apache configurations and operation mechanisms, though so few practical examples present. If you want to gain deep insight into Apache 2, go to another book.

Great web server introduction
Setting up my first Apache server, I found this book to be an invaluable aid. It discusses Apache's range of capabilities, explains the internal processes involved in serving Web sites, and illustrates typical configuration options. The explanations are simple, straightforward, and organized, and the writing style is encouraging. If I have any complaint, it is that I ran into more build/installation snags with several third-party Apache add-ons than the book predicted. Your mileage will no doubt vary.
