Building a Server with Freebsd 7: A Modular Approach Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most difficult part of building a server with FreeBSD, the Unix-like operating system, is arguably software installation and configuration. Finding the software is easy enough; getting everything up and running is another thing entirely. The only option for many people has been to hire a consultant.

Building a Server with FreeBSD 7 is for those of us who prefer to build our own server. If you're a small business owner looking for a reliable email server, a curious Windows administrator, or if you just want to put that old computer in the closet to work, you'll learn how to get things up and running quickly. Then, once you have a working system, you can experiment, extend, and customize as you please.

You'll learn how to install FreeBSD, then how to install popular server applications with the ports collection. Each package is treated as an independent module, so you can dip into the book at any point to install just the packages you need, when you need them. The book s modules cover topics like:

  • Running common FreeBSD admin commands and tasks
  • Managing the FreeBSD ports collection
  • Installing third-party apps like Apache, Courier-IMAP, SpamAssassin, CUPS, Cyrus SASL, MediaWiki, and WordPress
  • Setting up MySQL, NTP, ISC DHCP, ISC BIND DNS, PHP, OpenLDAP, OpenSSH, OpenSSL, and OpenVPN

Building a Server with FreeBSD 7 will have you up and running fast, with minimum hassle. (Just be sure to send the money you save to the Unemployed Consultant Foundation.)

Book News Annotation:

Although it inspires a significant amount of love and respect in the freely licensed world, and plenty of developers value its Unix-like qualities, FreeBSD is notoriously difficult to use. However, master practitioner Lucas organizes features and functions to make sense in the development environment, and so provides aid and comfort to new users, novices and those with significant experience alike. Updated to cover the latest version of FreeBSD, this starts with installing and booting, then wisely describes backup and recovery, followed by kernels, the network, system security, disks and file systems, practical applications, advanced software management, upgrading, Internet applications, small system services, potential disasters (including spam, worms, viruses and email), web and related services, system performance and monitoring, tricks, and overcoming system crashes and panic attacks. Lucas uses plenty of examples and focuses on the practical rather than the desired. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Book News Annotation:

Until the publication of this book, most IT professionals have had to hire a consultant when building and configuring a server with FreeBSD software. Hong, a former pilot and FreeBSD installer, has written this guide to assist IT personnel in implementing and maintaining this system on their own. By using a modular approach, this book will help FreeBSD users not only build a smooth-running server, but to add other software applications that will enhance efficiency and functionality.

Synopsis:

With clear and straightforward instructions, this guide explains how to install FreeBSD and covers configuration of popular third-party software using the ports collection. It takes the pain out of assembling the pieces and putting them all together so the reader can build a server that just works.

Synopsis:

The most difficult aspect of building a server (to act as a file server, Web server, or mail server) is the initial software installation and configuration. Getting your hands on the software is one thing; getting it all to function is another thing entirely. For many people, the only option is to hire an expensive consultant. Building a Server with FreeBSD tackles the problem systematically, so readers can accomplish the task themselves efficiently and affordably using the freely licensed FreeBSD operating system. Instructions are very clear and straightforward, so the reader need only read and follow the directions. In addition to explaining how to install FreeBSD for the first time, this guide covers configuration of popular third-party software using the ports collection. It takes the pain out of assembling the pieces and putting them all together so the reader can build a server that just works.
