This well written book contains many examples that will guide you through the many packages and tools Webmin provide. Every chapter is a step-by-step guide through procedures that enable us to install, control and get the most of our specific system. Is a well written book, you will forget this is a technical one and soon it will be your swiss knife on your desktop or shelves, for every problem you need to solve related to the administration of your system.
This is a great addition in the line of "Administrator's Cookbooks", the format and content is nice and consistent and I look forward to more in the line.
Webmin is the best answer I know to this need and its primary advantage is it doesn't add further complexity to the situation.
This book covers with a very practical approach most of the tasks you should perform administering a system using Webmin, from installing the webmin tool itself to put up a database or email service, without requiring you to become a guru or even knowing commands and all the complexities behind them.
I regret only the book not being available when I began experimenting Webmin, now it is, so I recommend you to get a copy!
Content of the book is well written and it is easy to follow. Some chapters (3 Securing Your System,5 Monitoring System and 7 Back Up) are very interesting and useful particular from the view where everything is possible to to in Webnin without using bash in the console. However some other chapter in my opinion are just brief introduction to the larger scope databases(MySql and Postgres) and web server(Apache) and I would recommend some other more specialized books on these topics. Overall I recommend this book to everyone how has any kind of connection with administrating Unix based OS.
