Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

I am more than satisfied (actually impressed) with how much system administration is possible from Webmin. Comprehensive and convenient, just about any administration I've done is covered here, along with several areas that I've hesitated to explore.
--Karel Baloun, Sr. Software Engineer, Looksmart, Ltd.

Being a fairly new Linux System Administrator, I find Jamie Camerons book a huge help.

This book is a little out dated but does clarify a few questions.

Format: Paperback
Webmin is an open-source web application which puts a graphical user interface on the typically command line oriented tasks involved in administrating a Unix-based server. I personally have been using Webmin for many years already, although I initially acquired most of my administration knowledge by getting my hands dirty at the command line level. If administration is not your main job and you don't have all the administration tool syntax memorized or the time to wade through man pages, having a helpful interface like Webmin is a godsend.
The book's author, Jamie Cameron, is also the main developer of Webmin. When you read the book you realize that he is first and foremost a command line administrative guru. However, he wanted to develop something to help novice admins get important jobs done quickly without getting bogged down in learning syntax.
The book has a useful "Contents at a Glance" page at the start which is handy when you want to quickly look up a common administrative task. Then there is the main "Contents" section which contains all of the chapters' subtopics and titles. The end of the book contains a very thorough index. Although the book has 60 chapters, the author did not bother to explicitly divide them up into sections. On my first glance at the book, it seemed as though the chapters were not very logically ordered, but upon further inspection I realized that they follow the general ordering of the modules within the Webmin application. The one exception is that the chapter on configuring Webmin itself is found close to the end of the book although it is the very first module in the actual application.

Before buying this book, I used Webmin and thought it was pretty easy to use and didn't think I needed a book about it. Was I wrong.
Not only does this book teach you all the things that you can do with Webmin, it is an excellent general Linux tutorial. The author goes into details about each subject (including what command line programs are run or which config files are changed by Webmin) and provides the meaning behind each setting. Along the way, you learn things that you didn't know existed or couldn't figure out how to do. For example, I had no idea I could mount a folder from a Windows machine without using samba or NFS. If you need to set up Raid, LVM, Apache Web server, Samba, the list goes on... this is the book.
If you need to set up Linux in a home or small office with Windows file sharing, internet gateway, web and mail hosting, DHCP server, etc., you should buy this book.

Format: Paperback
The evolution of the Webmin Linux/UNIX administration tool is nothing short of phenomenal. It stands as yet another great example of Open Source development, as many modules and bug fixes were contributed by the User Community. However, the core of Webmin comes from Jamie Cameron, who began developing a simple tool back in 1997 to help Junior Sys Admins maintain DNS servers. It is clear that Jamie was the best possible person to write "Managing Linux Systems with Webmin" not only because of his intimate knowledge of the software, but also because he is able to explain esoteric Admin-speak in clear, concise language.
This book is not about installing Linux or server software (such as Apache, BIND, or MySQL). Rather, it guides one through both the installation of Webmin --making sure your Webmin installation is complete and secure-- and the use of Webmin to administer practically *everything* on your Linux machine. And, it does an excellent job of accomplishing these goals!
For those new to Linux, this book provides information on making your server easy to administer via the friendly Webmin interface. For the seasoned Linux/UNIX Administrator, this may provide you the turn-key solution for setting up Junior Admins with the appropriate levels of access and configurability. For small shops looking to find more cost efficient and reliable solutions, Webmin may be the final piece needed to turn these prospects into reality. Jamie's task-oriented book makes mastery of Webmin simple and straightforward.
There are many impressive aspects of Webmin, including the fact that Webmin is available for almost every major Linux and UNIX distribution.

Format: Paperback
Jamie Cameron's book is a fantastic voyage inside what I think is one of the most important administration based tools available. He has created a very unique and easy to use masterpiece that makes the daily (and not so daily) administration tasks easy to perform - both remotely and on-site. The book gives a more in depth look at the application he's built and you get a better understanding of how it works, saves you time and money. His chapter on building and integrating your own webmin
modules is a must read for anyone that's used webmin and wanted to add their own pieces - It shows the true versatility and strength of Webmin. This book helps to solidify Jamie's remarkable understanding of and contribution to systems administration. This is a must have for everyone who uses Linux on the server!
