    I want to learn Linux, CPanel/WHM...

    Any recommended ways to learn these? Books, websites... whatever. I am looking to learn all about Linux, CPanel/WHM and other server related things.

    Thanks.

    Aloha,

    You could try to create a web account with a whm/cpanel host and play around while you figure it out. Cpanel also has extensive documentation on their website about cpanel and whm. www.cpanel.net

    For server admin, I can't help with any books, I learned as I goofed up.
    Regards, Karen

    Sites:

    Books:

    Unix Systems Administration Handbook is great.

    Can't think of any other books off the top of my head but there are tons out there.

    Thanks. I'll be sure to look at all of those.

    I really can't get access to the admin side of CPanel, etc. I do not have that type of access on anything (can't get it either).

    But those sites are a definite starting point, thanks!

    Any time

    I'm reasonably sure there is a demo mode on CPanel you can play with on the www.cpanel.net site. I think you would need WHM installed on a server to be able to see that though.

    If you are serious about learning. Get a cheap account somewhere that offers WHM/CPANEL and play with it.

    I am pretty serious I guess, but I don't really want to open any accounts, no extra money. (But, yes, I did think of that... )

    Thumbs up Howdy Neighbor...

    Seeing as how your only like 15 miles from me, and close enough to make the meetings... (Was it not you that use to live in Philadelphia?)

    You *may* want to check out a Linux Users Group, in Jackson!
    The website is www.lugoj.org where you can also sign up for the mailing list. Be warned though... this list can fill up your mailbox QUICKLY!

    Matter of fact, the meetings are on thursday evening at 6p.m. I believe ( I thought it was 7, but someone on the list said something about 6p.m. - yesterday ). Details on the website too, about the meetings. If your familar with downtown Jackson, they meet at two different locations, but tonights meeting is at the "Blackwater Cafe"

    I've recently joined the group's mailing list, but have yet to attend a meeting... Gotta get off my duff and "just do it" (as nike claims!)

    [edited] One of the members (Chad Whitten) is begining a class on Linux at Holmes Jr. College, this Friday. It's a night class - from 6-9)[/edited]

    Hope that helps ya out
