Centos 5 Server Recommended reading
 
Hi Guys I'm new to linux and I would like to get going with Centos 5 server as this is what my websites are hosted on . I hope to have a dedicated server in the future but need to learn to manage it before I do.

I have centos 5 installed as a virtual machine under vmware but other than login I don't know where to proceed from here.

Can you recommend some good linux books for beginners and especially any that refer to setting up and using the following

1.SSH

2. Server Security

3. Server Management

4. Server Design, Setup and Update

5. Kernel Management and Development

6. Web Server

7. FTP Server

8. SendMail Server

9. DNS Server

10. Webmin

11. Hardware

Many Thanks for your advice

Andy

The manuals: http://www.centos.org/docs/5/ download all to have handy and for review they cover everything you need to know/learn.

Thanks Lenard. But they refer mostly to virtual server information. Is this the correct documentation for administration of Centos 5 server instal?

Sorry my mistake, the CentOS4 guides also apply to CentOS5; http://www.centos.org/docs/4/

Also hit the Red Hat site since CentOS is repackaging of "a major North American Linux distribution".
