Publisher Comments:

Ubuntu Server is a complete, free server operating system that just works, with the extra Ubuntu polish, innovation, and simplicity that administrators love.

 

Now, there’s a definitive, authoritative guide to getting up and running quickly with the newest, most powerful versions of Ubuntu Server. Written by leading members of the Ubuntu community, The Official Ubuntu Server Book, Third Edition, covers all you need to know to make the most of Ubuntu Server, whether you’re a beginner or a battle-hardened senior systems administrator.

 

The authors cover Ubuntu Server from start to finish: installation, basic administration and monitoring, security, backup, troubleshooting, system rescue, and much more. They walk through deploying each of the most common server applications, from file and print services to state-of-the-art, cost-saving virtualization and cloud computing.

 

In addition, you’ll learn how to

  • Make the most of Ubuntu Server’s latest, most powerful technologies
  • Discover easy, fast ways to perform key administration tasks
  • Automate Ubuntu installs, no matter how many servers you’re installing
  • Quickly set up low-cost Web servers and e-mail
  • Protect your server with Ubuntu’s built-in and optional security tools
  • Minimize downtime with fault tolerance and clustering
  • Master proven, step-by-step server and network troubleshooting techniques
  • Walk through rescuing an Ubuntu server that won’t boot
  • Deploy your own Ubuntu servers in the cloud

 

Synopsis:

Authorized and aggressively co-promoted by Canonical, 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.
