How to Set Up and Maintain a WWW Site:
The Guide for Information Providers

Web Server Resource Guide

This page gives URLs for all the Web-related software and tools mentioned in How to Set Up and Maintain a WWW Site and is an online companion to Appendix A of that book. It also gives pointers to a number of sites that might be of interest to Web authors, script developers and administrators. This online copy is brought up to date periodically, but unfortunately I can't guarantee that every link will always be correct.

For your convenience, a number of essential utilities are mirrored here. The names of mirrored utilities are marked with an asterisk (*) and include hypertext links into a local collection of tools.

Extensions: Files ending with a .gz suffix are Unix utilities compressed with the gzip utility. Files ending with .hqx are Macintosh files encoded with BinHex (handled automatically by most Macintosh browsers). Files ending with .zip are DOS/MSWindows files compressed with the pkzip utility.
