    I have a few basic apache and linux books, and know a little about how the server works, but I'm trying to learn more. There is no decent local bookstore so I pretty well have to order over the net and therefore can't browse the book before buying. That's why I need some opinions on which book(s) to buy.

    What I am trying to learn now is pretty much how to do the things WHM and cPanel does, but directly from SSH. In other words, I want to understand exactly what is done on the server when an account is created, a subdomain is added, modifications are made, and so on. WHM and cPanel is an administrator's interface. I want to learn how to be the administrator.

    Any recommendations as to which book(s) I should buy will be appreciated?

    I currently have:
    Apache: Web Server Administration
    Red Hat Linux 7 Unleashed
    Sam's Teach Yourself Linux 2nd edition

    In another forum, Apache: the Definitive Guide was recommended, so I'll likely order it, but will it have what I want?

    Thanks for any help.

    shell scripts

    If you really want to learn the meat of linux then you will need to understand shell scripts. They do everything and CPanel uses a lot of them (/scripts directory). For that I recommend O'Reilly, Classic Shell Scripting. I have two copies, one from the 1980's and a recent one that covers the newer shells. It teaches you as you go and builds on what you have already used.
