Hi, I have opted to develop my web server as part of my final year engineering project, you can say just another Apache Clone. I know this sounds like reinventing the wheel, but I want to do something that deals with some core linux programming for my project. Do you know any sites/books dedicated to making your own server. Or sites that deals with concepts on binding to a port, using inetd, etc...I want to do this in C/C++. Any little help would be helpful and appreciated. Thanks in advance, San.

Programming Linux Applications is a good one. I also recommend getting the big book on Unix Network Programming by Stevens. K&R and Bjarne''s books are both mandatory. A good copy of the RFC for http and html might be handy to have printed out. I''d recommend doing just a static webserver for the time being.. without any mods or what not ..Keep the project relatively simple.

''Begining Linux Programming'' from wrox is a pretty readable book that covers sockets, semaphores, multi process programs, etc etc.

For a more dense, reference approach, I like the book ''Practical UNIX programming.''

The book Linux Programming Unleashed from SAMS has the source code to a minimal web server like app. It is an extremely minimal web server but it might be a good start for your project... the ISBN is: 0-672-31607-2

You will find these examples in the TCP/IP and Socket Programming chapter of the book...

Hope this helps...
