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.

Alright, well let me first start off by saying , I've tackled problems like this before but not in a very professional way.
I've been contracted for some server work for a game server hosting company(whatever, money is money). I have been asked to develop a game server control panel for its customers. Due to the fact that they have more than one server I have to decided to use this setup:
The web server or the server they have their website on is my master server because I will be using a MySQL database on this server. Each other dedicated box is for games and will be my slave servers. I'm using a perl server application that I wrote to connect them rather than using ssh which would be too confusing. I am wondering how to manage the servers.
I developed a simple way using linux pipes, fifo's to be exact that would launch a server into a pipe under a certain fifo name which was fairly simple and there was a ton of bugs. The servers would sometimes not start up due to some fifo error or something. It was annoying, so I stoped.
I need a knew way to run servers and manage them. How should I go about doing this?
Thanks in advanced,
P.S. I'm fairly good with perl/php and most linux stuff. I'm somewhat knowledgeable in c++ but other than that I would want to avoid using c++ or any c language at that.
This is going to sound inflamatory but I just can't help myself (perhaps it's because of the alcohol). If you don't know how to do your job, tell this to your employer so that it can find a person who does know how to do the job. You are being payed, aren't you? And you're asking a free help comunity..
