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.

I am new to this board, and fairly new to Linux. All of my remote web servers run linux and to this point it has made sense. Here's my dilema (probably as easy as 2+2 for yall)...
I am adding a GUI for one of my sites that will allow others with access to a password protected directory to maintain the MYSQL and the PHP pages without any knowledge of scripting.
I made several PHP files in a password protected directory that rewrite the public PHP files. Now this works without flaw on my windows2000pro machine but not on my webserver. In fact the only way I can get the hidden files to rewrite the public files is to CHMOD the public files to 777. That can't be right. I was under the impression that would allow all public users to modify the files and that is definitely not my goal.
If I remove public write access on the target file, I receive errors such as permission denied or could not include file.
Someone please explain this to me. Remember I am a windows user so I don't really understand linux lingo. I wish I did though.
