Authorized and aggressively co-promoted by Canonical, The The Official Ubuntu Server Book is the server companion to the world's #1 Ubuntu book. Fully updated to reflect Canonical's latest Ubuntu server release, this book covers everything "mere mortals" need to know to install, configure, and administer efficient, low-cost Ubuntu servers in any environment. Ideal for both new and experienced Ubuntu and Linux administrators, this book covers a wide spectrum of core admin tasks, including automated Kickstart and FAI installation techniques; package management; security; backup; monitoring; and even virtualization. Readers will also find detailed, step-by-step "recipes" for installing and configuring each leading type of server, including web, database, DNS, DHCP, file, mail, print, and many other types. Beginning administrators and power users can rely on this book from the moment they decide to install and configure their first Ubuntu servers. Advanced sysadmins and netadmins can rely on it for simple, elegant, streamlined best practices that help them get more done in less time: techniques that fully leverage the major improvements to Ubuntu and Linux administration that have been implemented in recent years.
