Pls refer to & Oreilly's OpenBook Project .

You would be able to download a few good docs or whole books for web server adminstration.

One neat tool I find useful for learning configurations I know absolutely nothing about is Webmin. It's a gigantic web based configuration tool for almost all aspects of a Linux based server (httpd, named, postfix, user/groups, packages). You can use it to kickstart the configuration, then go into the manuals of the configs for detailed knowledge.

Remote Access - Use VNC

Postby jargon » Mon Oct 13, 2003 9:45 am

For remote access use vnc.

For example, on the linux box have sshd running.

Now (with a copy of vncserver) running, ssh into the system
and run vncserver. This will create a session that will allow you to login to the system remotely via a gui.

You could use Realvnc from a win32 box to connect and work on the linux box. Its really awesome.

Another alternative would be, if you are connecting to the linux machine from a win32 box, use cygwin (google::cygwin)
which comes with copy of X11 to connect onto the system. Of course this would be really slow if the system if off the lan.

either way, have ssh as a base to launch vnc. never use telnet.

Think twice about security reasons when you go to make your things done remotely.
