I'm fairly competent in front end design work. No expert, but enough to be dangerous. I'm interested in learning how to take a cloud server from scratch to a properly built, ready to scale, secure, efficient etc LAMP stack. I really have no experience in the topic.

I've been going through a lot of information in the Rackspace Knowledge Center but was looking for a book or other tutorials to help me get started. At the current time, Linux is like Greek to me so a few books may be necessary.

Thanks for your time and any suggestions.

Not sure what flavor of Linux you are interested in, but I like Ubuntu, and this book may be helpful: http://www.amazon.co...n/dp/0137081332

or maybe this one: http://www.amazon.co...r/dp/0782143377

If you are interested in shell (and I think you should be) you should definitely check out this one as well: http://www.amazon.co...g/dp/013308504X

If for some reason you are interested in Nginx rather than Apache Server Administration, then check out this book: http://www.amazon.co...k/dp/1849514968

Hey thank you very much! I've been leaning towards Ubuntu so I'm glad you mentioned that option. I'll be sure to take a look at your suggestions.

Thanks again,
