Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

As I'm seeing more questions about (badly coded) web applications spawning rogue processes I wonder why people don't read their logs. Attacks require reconnaissance so keeping an eye on anything that looks like a prelude enables you to take measures. And please spend time updating when updates are released, installing apps properly (like not leaving the installation files around when docs remind you not to), hardening (any IDS, mod_security, Gotroot rulesets, mod_evasive or equivalent, PHPIDS, Suhosin,...
