    Good start

    This book just skims the surface for running a robust Apache web server. It will leave you with many questions unanswered, but gives you valuable places to go on the Internet to search for answers. Focuses on the Fedora Linux distro. The first few chapters actually go through how to install the Linux OS. This book would be better if it was more focused on Apache.

    VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    Are you a systems administrator, but know very little about Linux? If you are, then this book is for you! Authors Tony Steidler-Dennison and Stuart Langridge, have done an outstanding job of writing a practical book that shows you how to build, configure and maintain servers running the LAMP open source Web application platform. Steidler-Dennison and Langridge, begin by showing you how to install Linux successfully on your server. Then, the authors explain hot to run and how to manage your Linux server on a daily basis. They continue by identifying those extra capabilities, and discuss the command line's advantages over GUI. Next, the authors discuss the lot as they take you on a tour of the Linux system administrator's toolkit. Then, the authors explore some of the basics of Apache itself, including how it works and how it fits into the Linux environment. Then, they focus on a selection of handy tools that will help you to configure your LAMP server and add new packages to it. They also get a feel for working with SSH, which allows command line access to a server across the network , and VNC, which enables you to access your LAMP server's GUI remotely. Next, the authors give you an introduction to backup tools. Finally, the authors set up a firewall on their LAMP server, and install intrusion detection services as a means to identify remote cracking attempts. This most excellent book gives you the knowledge you need to build, configure and maintain servers running LAMP open source Web application platform. More importantly, this book will show you how to build a Linux server, and help you decide which flavor of Linux best suits your situation.
