Chapter 3. The Apache Module Architecture and API

In this chapter we lay out the design of the Apache module architecture and its application programming interface. We describe the phases in which Apache processes each request, list the data types that are available for your use, and go over the directives that control how extension modules can intercede in transaction processing.

This is the broad overview of the API. For a full blow-by-blow description of each function and data structure available to you, see Chapter 9, Chapter 10 and Chapter 11.
