This is the single most helpful computer book I have read. I have been dabbling with setting up a server for months. If you want a web server, a mail server, a file server, or some variant, this book will help you to build it. I know that seasoned system administrators frown on the scripted "type this and then this" approach to setting up a server but you have to start somewhere. This book will help you to set up a full fledged working and relatively secure server.

Finding the software is easy enough; getting everything up and running is another thing entirely. The only option for many people has been to hire a consultant. Building a Server with FreeBSD 7 is for those of us who prefer to build our own server

This article describes building an internal FreeBSD Update Server At a minimum, updates require building on a FreeBSD release greater than or equal to the target release version for distribution.

This article describes building an internal FreeBSD Update Server. The r is written by Colin Percival cpercivaBSD. org, Security Officer Emeritus of FreeBSD. For users that think it is convenient to update their systems against an official update server, building their own FreeBSD Update Server may help to extend its functionality by supporting manually-tweaked FreeBSD releases or by providing a local mirror that will allow faster updates for a number of machines. At a minimum, updates require building on a FreeBSD release greater than or equal to the target release version for distribution.

Building a Server with FreeBSD 7 by Bryan Hong. I just had the chance to read through Building a Server with FreeBSD 7 earlier today, and I was pleasantly surprised. He then organized them and formatted them nicely. The information is all in one place, it's easy to find (as it's organized by service/FBSD port), and there's plenty of it.

"Building an Internet Server with FreeBSD 6" is the ultimate resource on the installation and configuration of open source server software with FreeBSD 6. This book contains step-by-step guides on building some of the most popular and powerful server applications available. To name a few: Apache HTTP (webserver), Courier-IMAP (IMAP server), CUPS (print server), BIND (DNS server), MySQL (database server), Postfix (mail server), and more.

How can a book with only 256 pages be so amazingly helpful? For such a tiny book, it packs a serious knockout punch of concise, practical, and useful information and procedures. It is literally a roadmap that describes how to install, configure, and run 28 different applications and services.

The list: web server, mail server, database server, print server, time server, DHCP server, Mediawiki server, blog site, OpenVPN server, FTP server, Samba server, content-management-system, anti-spam server, and webmail server. Plus, the book describes how to install PHP, phpLDAPadmin, phpMyadmin, a DHCP client, and more.

Oh, and in those jam-packed 256 pages, Mr. Hong managed to include a section on how to use, maintain, and upgrade ports!

Each chapter is helpfully tagged with a level rating which identifies how much "effort" is required to install the app/service. Level 1 apps are the easiest. Level 5 apps are the hardest -- though, thanks to Mr. Hong concise and informative writing, even level 5 apps are easy to install.

Each chapter is broken down into: Summary, Resources (web links), Requirements (what is needed before starting the chapter), Optional Requirements, Preparation, Install steps, Configure the app/service, Utilities to manage the app/service, Config files involved, Log files involved, and a Notes section.

I've been in the IT business for over 15yrs and this book, by far, is one of the best I've read for an operating system. It is clear, concise, informative, useful, practical, productive, and delivers the goods. The book is so good that it should be included with every FreeBSD CD/DVD shipped or downloaded. If you use FreeBSD, this book should be mandatory reading.

I love to learn as much about a particular technology as I can. If this describes you, this might not be the book for you. This book will not go into all the details of Apache or MySQL. There are plenty of books out there on individual topics.

The reason I love this book is not because of all the detail it has, but because it gives you a good overview of how things should be setup and allow you to jump into action and build a working tangible server. This book gives you a good overview of how to put all the pieces together to build a functioning server.

If you are looking for a book filled with every detail, this is not for you. If you want a quick start in getting something up and running, buy this book. If you want a book that will go into detail n FreeBSD 7, check out Absolute FreeBSD: The Complete Guide to FreeBSD, 2nd Edition

I have every book on FreeBSD on the market. But somehow I was never able to get a fully functional FreeBSD server running rock solid.

This book got me there! It tells me precisely what parts (ports or packages) I need to create a particular type of server (mail, internet, etc.), where to find them, how to install and configure, all in short, concise instructions. And it all worked! It's really a great little book. I hope the author comes by and checks out reviews of his book so I can tell him here how much I appreciate his taking the time to publish his "notes."

This is the single most helpful computer book I have read. I have been dabbling with setting up a server for months. Today's servers utilize so many different technologies (HTTP, SQL, SSH, SSL, FTP, DNS, Mail) that just gathering the information to set up server with average features is a big task - especially if it is not your real job. It is pretty simple to find information on setting up a particular package, but not easy to get information to make it all work together.

This book takes a very clear flowchart approach and tells you what to install and in what order. If you want a web server, a mail server, a file server, or some variant, this book will help you to build it.

I know that seasoned system administrators frown on the scripted "type this and then this" approach to setting up a server but you have to start somewhere. This book will help you to set up a full fledged working and relatively secure server. From there if you want to learn more about a particular technology, great go right ahead and delve in deeper (with another more specific book.) You will after following the instructions in this book have a great platform to configure and expand.

I have read several other books on different variants of BSD and this one really pulled it all together.

A good quick reference, and ties in well with the topics presented in Absolute FreeBSD (2nd ed) by M Lucas. But Lucas has a much better writing style, and gets across his technical info in a better way, by explaining why things work the way they do.

Building a Server with FreeBSD 7 is kind of the quick and dirty, do this, do this, done. And although it has helped me set up FreeBSD on my first try as a competent server, I'm still trying to find out why the book tells you to do certain things and how components work together. With the info from Lucas in his books, you know how things work together and why you're instructed to do certain things.

Having this book is like having a good friend who is a FreeBSD Internet Server guru by your side. This book shows you how to do what you want to do and gives you just enough background info so that you feel confident in what you have done. To search out the specific info in this book on your own would take weeks of frustration and sifting through hundreds if not thousands of pages of confusing manuals and articles.

I only wish this author would make another book and include even more how-to's such as Nagios, Cacti, Zenoss, SNMP, Single Sign On, and other common tools that FreeBSD Internet Server Administrators use when setting up an environment.
