Default Apache administrative sources?

Hi, I'm about to set up an Apache Web server for a very small company, & I'd like to pass information on how to administer Apache when I leave. Does anyone have favorite books or Web tutorials which they have found helpful?

Thanks!

The official Apache documentation is pretty good IMO:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/

But I think the best information you can pass on is your telephone number, in my experience letting non-technical people "mess" with stuff only leads to more problems (since they don't really know what they're doing).
In the long run, just fixing stuff yourself is often faster and easier...

Pro Apache, Third Edition by Peter Wainwright

This is probably my favorite apache web server book. A couple months ago I was tasked with deploying an apache httpd + tomcat web application environment. (And I knew virtually zilch about either.) That's the book I read to get up to speed.

Of course you're going to want to document your site-specific details for your company as well. That may be the most important piece. Anyone can pick up a book and read it. It's the domain knowledge that gets you.

It might also be wise to make sure they understand which version of Apache is being used and the Apache 1.x / Apache 2.x thing.
