Preface

WELCOME to The Official Ubuntu Server Book!

When most people talk about Ubuntu these days, they tend to talk about the Ubuntu Desktop. After all, it’s the easy-to-use “just works” approach to the desktop that has made Ubuntu one of the most popular desktop Linux distributions. What has gotten less attention, although even that is starting to change, is Ubuntu Server. It turns out that desktop Linux users aren’t the only ones who want their distribution to “just work”—system administrators appreciate that on their servers as well. In Ubuntu Server you will find all of the powerful server infrastructure from the Debian project plus that extra bit of Ubuntu polish, innovation, and focus on ease of use.
