ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

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.

hello there, uhhmmm...anyone here could give me an idea or point me a reference on how web server application are created (console based) using c++ and linux as it's environment...i'd be using threading, processes, synchronization and http protocol...
a reference to any website or books would be nice...thank you...
Perl, PHP or Python can be a good idea for webserver programming. Perl can help you with threading, processes, synchronization and http protocol. It is definitely a very versatile and strong programming language both for command line and for web programming.

It is a well known suite of tutorials, and it's quite friendly. But I suggest you also read "Linux Socket Programming By Example" , or "Beginning Linux Programming", or "Linux Programming Unleashed". These are commercial and, although you can find them on emule or whatever, you ought to buy them (really, the printed version of such a book is great!). And there is also a free ebook, "Advanced Linux Programming" and it's quite good. Hope this helps, cheers.
Just another suggestion. I once looked into "ptypes". It's a C++ library like STL but it adds a lot of stuff that would be hard to write portable so it works on different platforms. Like how do you do portable multitread locking and networking with STL? (I have no idea)
If you are looking for a small HTTP server that you can embed into your own application, then there are already a few of these out there. For one, go to http://www.acme.com/software/thttpd/. There are more links from there.
If you want to develop a server from the ground up, get yourself an HTTP (not HTML) reference, such as http://www.w3.org/Protocols/HTTP/HTTP2.html. Also get netcat, if you don't already have it, and use it to see what a browser sends to a server. Use the information at Beej's guide, from above, to start writng code that responds to the requests of a browser. You can easily have an embedded server that performs basic functionality in a couple of hundred lines of code. Probably less.
