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'm using Ubuntu 7.04 server which comes with apache2. I done some directory surfring and found that there are two .conf files : apache2.conf and httpd.conf. I want to add the directives ServerName and DocumentRoot but into which of the conf files should I place the two directives ???
First of all excuse my English!
I just came by while searching for an answer for the same question!
And based on your argue guys, I did this small test just to see what file does apache depend on when it starts. I simply renamed httpd.conf to something else (e.g. http.conf_) and restarted apache. And the result? Apache failed to start!
Then did the same thing to the other file (apache2.conf), and again apache failed to start, which means that apache will actually read and apply any configs done in BOTH FILES!
And thanks for reading!!
P.S. did the test under Debian 5...
