" OpenVMS with Apache, OSU and WASD is required reading for the OpenVMS web administrator, novice or veteran. For those who manage more than one type of these web servers or who are migrating from one web server to another, this book is indispensable."-Richard Barry, OpenVMS Apache Project Leader "As the author of the WASD package I've been reviewing Alan's book and it looks good. Alan's grasp of OSU (he is an OSUser after all) and even Apache is probably better than that of WASD, which itself is excellent. More importantly he generates a synthesis of the material, placing it in context and drawing out the important aspects of a topic." -Mark Daniel, Author of the WASD Webserver "This is the reference book that users of the OSU web server have long sought."-David Jones, Author of the DECthreads Webserver "...an excellent and in-depth look at these three web servers with respect to running on an OpenVMS platform. The book provides an amazing amount of information to help choose the right web server for your system, and then proceeds to include some of the nitty gritty details on how to set that server up and manage it...There is enough useful and technical information in this book to make it a valuable asset for any OpenVMS administrator looking to run a web server." - Bill Catambay, mac-guild.org
