What readers are saying about the book
Get .htaccess made easy
Jeff has long been the go-to guy for all things .htaccess. I always think of .htaccess as pretty much programming voodoo, where saying a chant as you save the file has about the same chance of working as any actual characters I type. But of course that isn’t true, and I’m glad Jeff is here to help us through it with this book. — Chris Coyier
If you ever wanted to finally fully understand .htaccess and all its peculiarities, this comprehensive, well-written book will be just what you are looking for. — Vitaly Friedman
I’ll probably never master regex or the mysterious ways of the .htaccess file but thanks to Jeff I am a few steps closer to being a little more in control of both! It’s all in here, from redirects, to optimisation through to a dedicated section on using .htaccess to super charge your WordPress site. I can’t recommend it enough – grab a copy now. — Keir Whitaker
In .htaccess made easy, Jeff Starr has carried out the difficult task of creating a guide that provides instruction for beginners while acting as a useful reference that advanced users can dip in and out of. This beautiful guide to .htaccess is delivered in Jeff’s good-humoured and engaging style, making it readable, accessible, and a must-have for your web development library. — Siobhan McKeown
This is a nicely conceived book, with a professional presentation, well written step by step technical reference with a human touch in the explanation. — Leon Fernandez
This book is great ... I’ve already learnt how to enable compression through the .htaccess which I was doing through PHP before! If I were to try and learn everything in this book off of the internet, then ... well I wouldn’t even try! It makes things so simple and breaks them down, I actually know what some of the flags mean that I’ve mean using for years now! Thanks so much for a great resource. — David
I’ve been looking for a resource like this for ages. — Nick W.
I purchased the .htaccess book and really like it. I am a slow learner and need things to be well explained. The web documentation at apache.org always perplexed me. Your book fits the bill. In its clean explanations, I have learned a lot about how Apache works. — Tim Thorp
I recently purchased a copy of both .htaccess made easy and Digging Into WordPress (print edition). These books deal in-depth with all of the topics which soon or later a web/WordPress developer needs to cope with. Also customer support was excellent! — Daniele Alvaro
