Do you know the best sites/books for learning Apache on your own? Any recommendations?

I've discovered the documentation to be really helpfull. I provides extensive good examples to create understanding it and it is uses simpler.

The state Documentation is a great starting point.

Check http://httpd.apache.org/docs/ and http://httpd.apache.org/docs-project/

I discovered these books Apache: The Definitive Guide, Third Edition Apache Cook book, Second Edition

The entire list can be obtained here http://www.apachebookstore.com/confluence/oss/display/BOOKS/Books+on+Apache+HTTP+Server+(httpd)

I had been also searching Apache books for developers and selected to see this:

Apache Cook book, Second Edition - Solutions and Good examples for Apache Administration - By Wealthy Bowen, Ken Coar
