    Bash scripts are basicly files filled with commands you use in the bash shell, and when you run the file, the commands within the file will run. If you want to know more about bash scripting look at www.linuxcommand.org.

    Bash is a scripting language kind of like Perl. You can use it to do a varity of things, including but not limited to automating admin tasks, etc... But, you can also use Perl to do those things.

    Hmmm... I wonder, can you use Bash script on your server rather then Perl?

    Here's a good guide. The (warning! long load!) manual can also help.
