LAMP Server Setup & Maintainence Essentials
Mr. Philip Mather "root"
Classic Shell Scripting: Hidden Commands that Unlock the Power of Unix
"Lots of people will find this usefull, only con is that the examples go from easy to hard with no really middle ground."
sed and awk Pocket Reference (Pocket Reference (O'Reilly))
"Buy this bundled with the above and they both then easily justify their cost."
Linux iptables Pocket Reference (Pocket Reference (O'Reilly))
"Don't own this but IP tables are one of the least understood or demonstrated subjects out there."
SELinux: NSA's Open Source Security Enhanced Linux
"Perfect partnered with the above, this is also one of those subjects that people don't explain they just tell you to turn it off."
"Probably the most required book on this list."
Linux Server Hacks: 100 Industrial-Strength Tips and Tools
"Mines on order at the moment."
Linux Server Hacks, Volume Two: Tips & Tools for Connecting, Monitoring, and Troubleshooting: v. 2
"Version 2 of the above and it's perfect partner, also on it's way to my desk."
Essential System Administration: Tools and Techniques for Linux and Unix Administration
"This covers slightly more diverse subjects and probably isn't needed for the hobbyist/home user, but for the professional it's got some of the less covered subjects."
Managing Linux Systems with Webmin: System Administration and Module Development (Bruce Perens' Open Source)
"I don't actually own this book but the software makes my day to day life so much easier it's untrue, buy this mans book so he can write more software, I will be shortly."
MySQL: the Definitive Guide to Using, Programming, and Administering MySQL 4.1 and 5.0 (Developer's Library)
"Where to start with MySQL, I own an old version of this book and it covers everything."
"Partner to the above this will help solve 90% of your day to day problems when working with MySQL."
High Performance MySQL: Optimization, Backups, Replication, Load Balancing & More (Advanced Tools and Techniques for Mysql Administrators)
"How to tune your MySQL databases to the bleeding edge, covers everything with decent detail and explaination."
PHP Cookbook: 1
"This is partnered with the MySQL cookbook and works up to covering some of those more niggling problems encountered with PHP"
PHP and MySQL Web Development, 3rd Edition
"This is the place to start for PHP (apart from the PHP site obviously), I've got an older version but these books cover the starting ground comprehensively."
"Perl, the second P in LAMP! Yes it's even easier to write strange code in than PHP! No I don't work for O'Reilly honest."
"The Perl Cookbook, good recipies for good solutions."
Apache: The Definitive Guide
"Apache has been covered quite well by the *nix books earlier but it's probably worth having this seperate book and it's highly rated although I don't own it."
"The cookbook partner to the above, the only reason it's not on my wishlist is because I do this stuff before I have breakfast, litterally sometimes."
"Because sooner or later your going to have to even if you don't want to. Although I think carefully written Java Script is a very good thing."
HTML & XHTML: The Definitive Guide (HTML & XHTML: Definitive Guide)
"This isn't going to make you a web developer but I really wish people would stick to the absolute highest standards and to do that you need to know the whys, hows and whats. So this book makes it in."
Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide
"Partnered to the above for the same reasons, these don't teach you how to make good looking sites but looks aren't everything. These two books aren't substitutes for expirience."
The Mythical Man-month: Essays on Software Engineering
"Some of the examples are dated but the lessons remain, if you manage anyone in any IT project based capacity and you haven't read or heard of this book then you need to read and digest this."
