A Bookshelf of Linux Web Server Technology on a Single CD
Sebastopol, CA--If we always knew in advance what questions we were
going to have to answer, then easy access to reference books wouldn't
be an issue. But as many web developers and programmers know, they're
much more likely in the course of their work to face a pop quiz than a
test they've prepared for. For times like these, when you need a Linux
answer quickly and don't want to manually search through volume after
volume, or happen to be away from your bookshelf, The Linux Web Server
CD Bookshelf (O'Reilly, US $79.95) provides the solution. The
latest addition to O'Reilly's bestselling CD Bookshelf series brings Linux
users an up-to-date, exhaustive reference library on a single CD, so
being without their favorite Linux book is a not a situation they're
likely to face.
The Linux Web
Server CD Bookshelf delivers power and flexibility to
web developers, regardless of their experience level, with the
portability and ease of use that has come to be associated with this
bestselling series. This CD provides online access to six popular books
for Linux users running web servers and building databases, while
taking up less than two inches of shelf space. Included in the CD
Bookshelf are unabridged versions of the following:
As a bonus, The Linux Web Server CD Bookshelf also includes the
paperback version of Linux in a Nutshell,
This compilation of open source technologies represents the platform of
choice for developing and deploying high performance web applications.
Apache, MySQL, and Perl/Python/PHP are the tools that make Linux a
strong applications development platform. According to the developers
who use them, the best thing about these technologies is that they are
open, highly interoperable, and free.
Formatted in HTML, The Linux Web
Server CD Bookshelf can be read by
any web browser. All 3200 plus pages of O'Reilly reference and
tutorials are fully searchable and cross-referenced with an index for
each book and a master index for the entire collection. When purchased
separately, the six books would retail for $214.70, but The Linux Web
Server CD Bookshelf retails for only $79.95.
