I've started looking into books to learn from instead of scouring Google. I'm trying this Kindle book called Beginning Ubuntu Server Administration: From Novice to Professional by Sander Van Vugt. Initially, I thought it looked promising, but I feel lost following his directions just to setup a Samba file server. I try following his command to try Mounting it and the CLI doesn't accept it. I feel like I wasted $17.
To often I come across tutorials that either do not work or the author skips across things. Or they don't explain what parts of their Commands should have substituted information.
As a beginner I would like to learn how to setup a File Server and also understand Apache. Maybe I should be looking for books on specific things like Apache or Samba. It seems like books that try to comprehensively cover several things on Ubuntu wind up missing details.
