One of my suggestions I have already named:

Ivan Ristić's Apache Security -- it might seem outdated, but the
knowledge it contains is valid for pretty much every daemon you're
running on the net.

Many people here recommand Rich Bowen's books. In particular,
the Apache Cookbook, written in cooperation with Ken Coar.
(I must admit I haven't read it so far..)

And then we have something of that on our own:

In general, I like to say: The easiest way to learn is to try.

Good luck (:
