The Internet/Intranet revolution has created a renewed interest in Linux networking and Web servers. This handy kit provides Linux-compatible Web tools and outlines how to implement them to create a secure and stable Web server on a Linux network. The book includes day-to-day Web server administration--plus all the software one needs on the CD-ROM.

A broad set of talents is required to set up a Linux Web server and a Web site that uses the server. You need to be a Linux administrator, a network guru, a graphic designer, proficient in HTML, and able to create both Common Gateway Interface (CGI) and Java scripts--or have some significant subset of these skills. Linux Web Server Toolkit covers all these topics. The approach throughout is not just to tell you how to do something, but to put it in its appropriate context.

The book covers topics from installing Linux and a Linux Web server to creating CGI scripts and planning disaster-recovery schemes. Advanced users will undoubtedly find some material, such as the creation of Web pages or choosing an Internet service provider (ISP), too elementary. However, the chapter on configuring the Apache Web server and the chapter on configuring the Netscape FastTrack server are essential reading for all levels. The first 9 chapters form a foundation for new Web administrators to use the last 12 chapters of the book. These later chapters cover such topics as Web-page statistics, File Transfer Protocol (FTP) access setup, server APIs, and Internet security. This book also contains a concise and useful overview of Internet technology. The included CD-ROM features Caldera OpenLinux Lite, the Apache Web Server, X Windows, programming tools, and many other Unix applications. --Robert Frankland
