    Learning GNU/Linux (Debian)


    I've looked around a bit, but have not really found something that fully fits what I am looking for.

    I've been using GNU/Linux (Debian) for a bit and tinkering with some programming. I found the Linux From Scratch that I will be working on to learn Linux a little better. What I have not been able to find is something that will help with some of the more advanced tasks of running Linux (mainly as a web server). Things like administering an email server (postfix), web server (apache2), FTP server (proftpd), and so on. All I have found are specific guides that just tell you to paste these configurations and that's it; not much explanation.

    So, if possible, I would like to get some links to some guides on how to get those servers up and running with all the juicy stuff. This would be a great little resource of links for the more advanced newbie. Debian oriented big plus, but doesn't have to be.

    Also, some advanced C/C++ programming tutorials for GNU/Linux would be great, too. Things like building server/clients and setting up communications with some best practices, threading, processes, etc.

    Debian Tutorial

    That one got me started, even though I am an Ubuntu user, and this will also give you some help I guess.

    Debian Linux Tutorial - Beginners Guide To Linux Servers and Networking Installation and Set Up with Instructions On How To Configure A Home Server

    Though I'd try tasksel to install the web server. It works under Ubuntu, but don't know about Debian.
