In this issue

Back in 1999 we decided to change Apache Week to accept external advertising, with the revenues split with the Apache Software Foundation and the O'Reilly Network. We decided earlier this year not to renew any of the advertising, and this issue marks the first that is free of web site advertising (the newsletter advertising runs out later in the year).

Apache Week is written and sponsored by Red Hat but is maintained as an independent and editorially unbiased publication. Our mission is to be an essential resource for anyone running an Apache-based server and we're proud to be in our sixth year of publication.

Featured articles

In this section we highlight some of the articles on the web that are of interest to Apache users.

This week, it's Apache and Tomcat again as Robert Eksten shows us how to set up Tomcat as an Apache add-on using mod_jk instead of mod_jserv. It is relatively simple as it only installs prebuilt components and the steps do not involve compiling source code.

In PHP DevCenter, Darrell Brogdon looks at security issues relating to PHP when running PHP as either an Apache module or a CGI binary, and the ways to remedy them. Meanwhile for PHP newbies, "Variable Manipulation and Output" presents the various methods to manipulate and access PHP variables within PHP scripts.

The Developer Shed provides an introduction to XML, XSL and Cocoon. The latter is a subproject of Apache XML Project. This tutorial covers the installation and configuration of Tomcat and Cocoon to serve XML pages, and the creation of DTD, XML and XSL files. The result is a document that can be viewed using a HTML or WAP browser or as a pdf file.
