Individuals, organizations, and businesses are relying on their web pages to provide and collect information, manage processes, and interact with communities and customers. A reliable, informative, and responsive web site can reduce cost, increase visibility, and create a positive image for the owner of that site.Behind every successful web page is an overworked and underappreciated webmaster.Webmasters make sure that the information on a site is accessible and usable; that the site is always available; that performance is good; that users can get the information that they need; and that the site can collect the information it needs to serve those users. These disparate tasks require many different tools and skills. Webmaster in a Nutshell pulls together in a single volume all the essential reference information for webmasters working on UNIX-based web servers.In this second edition of Webmaster in a Nutshell, we've updated our material to include the latest versions of HTML and Javascript, and also expanded the book to cover the newest technologies emerging on the Web. The book covers:

  • HTML 4.0, with special attention to forms, tables and frames
  • CSS (Cascading Style Sheets)
  • XML, the next-generation markup language for the Web
  • CGI, with a chapter dedicated to the Perl module CGI.pm
  • JavaScript 1.2
  • PHP, the HTML-embedded programming language
  • HTTP 1.1, the underlying protocol that drives the Web
  • Apache server administration, including Apache modules
  • mod_perl, the Apache module for enhancing CGI
  • performance and providing a Perl interface to the Apache API
Webmaster in a Nutshell, part of the bestselling O'Reilly series of reference books, makes it easy to find the information you want about the technologies you use. You'll keep your other books on the shelf; you'll keep Webmaster in a Nutshell next to your keyboard.

Comments about oreilly Webmaster in a Nutshell, 2nd Edition:

Great book! I bought it when I was doing PHP on Unix development for a quick Javascript/CSS reference and have found it incredibly useful since. I'm currently developing on Linux and NT it is indispenable no matter where you take it.

Webmaster in a Nutshell, 2nd Edition Review

By Kostas Nikolaidis

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly Webmaster in a Nutshell, 2nd Edition:

I recently bought the Deluxe Edition at a Barnes & Noble store (Bargin Shelves in the front). They had it at $14.99 (from $69.99). Let me say I love it.

This basic version of the book would have been a five though if i didn't have the deluxe version. The reason it isn't that I was spoiled by the Deluxe Edition of Webmaster in a Nutshell.

This basic version is a great reference tool for all your web needs. The deluxe version was a god send though, as it had five very good books on cd, and gave you a free years subscription to O'Reilly's Web Developer's Libary on the web, which by the way has the latest version's of all the books.
