About the book

The Most Complete, Easy-to-Follow Guide to Ubuntu Linux

Ubuntu Linux is a state-of-the-art operating system, and you need a book that's just as advanced. Along with being the most comprehensive reference to installing, configuring, and working with Ubuntu, A Practical Guide to Ubuntu Linux® also provides extensive server coverage you won't find in any other Ubuntu book.

A Practical Guide to Ubuntu Linux Fourth Edition

  1. Mark Sobell's - A Practical Guide to Ubuntu Linux®, Fourth Edition - is the most thorough and up-to-date reference to installing, configuring, securing, and working with Ubuntu desktops and servers.
  1. The #1 Ubuntu server resource, fully updated for Ubuntu 14.04 (Tasty Tahr)-the Long Term Support (LTS) release many companies will rely on for years!
  2. Updated JumpStarts help you set up Samba, Apache, Mail, FTP, NIS, OpenSSH, DNS, and other complex servers in minutes
  3. Hundreds of up-to-date examples, plus comprehensive indexes that deliver instant access to answers you can trust
Sobell walks you through every essential feature and technique, from installing Ubuntu to working with the newest GNOME improvements, and from configuring servers and monitoring networks to handling day-to-day system administration. His exceptionally clear explanations demystify everything from Apache, Samba, and Postfix to Xen virtualization, Python programming, and MariaDB database management.

Fully updated JumpStart sections quickly help you get complex servers running-often in as little as five minutes. You'll even find up-to-date guidance on new LPI and CompTIA Linux certification pathways for Linux professionals.

Sobell draws on his immense Linux knowledge to explain both the "hows" and the "whys" of Ubuntu. He's taught hundreds of thousands of readers and never forgets what it's like to be new to Linux. Whether you're a user, administrator, or programmer, you'll find everything you need here-now, and for many years to come.

Some praise for the First Edition of A Practical Guide to Ubuntu Linux®

"Overall, I think it's a great, comprehensive Ubuntu book that'll be a valuable resource for people of all technical levels." - John Dong, Ubuntu Backports Team Leader and Ubuntu Forum Council Member.

"I am so impressed by how Mark Sobell can approach a complex topic in such an understandable manner. His command examples are especially useful in providing a novice (or even advanced) administrator with a cookbook on how to accomplish real-world tasks on Linux. He is truly an inspired technical writer!" - George Vish II, Senior Education Consultant, Hewlett-Packard Company.

"I would so love to be able to use this book to teach a class about not just Ubuntu or Linux but about computers in general. It is thorough and well written with good illustrations that explain important concepts for computer usage." - Nathan Eckenrode, New York Local Community Team

"I read a lot of Linux technical information every day, but I'm rarely impressed by tech books. I usually prefer online information sources instead. Mark Sobell's books are a notable exception. They're clearly written, technically accurate, comprehensive, and actually enjoyable to read." - Matthew Miller, Senior Systems Analyst/Administrator, BU Linux Project, Boston University Office of Information Technology
