Learning Linux from the Command Line Books?

I work for a web hosting company and we sell servers that are controlled remotely for website hosting and/or email. What are some good books for learning how to troubleshoot things that go wrong when serving websites and sending and receiving email on Linux. In particular we run services like Apache/MySQL/Qmail, etc... I'm a bit past being a Linux Newbie. I know how to move around and everything and I dont need any information on how to install linux or use the Windows interfaces as everything is controlled through an SSH window. What are some good books for this??

    Linux provides a vast variety of software to use. Trying to find a book that deals with everything is impossible! Due to the ever developing nature of Linux software, any book that you get will gradually become out of date. Also, by its nature, many linux applications have loads of information available on the here are the links to the manuals and useful tutorials for the applications that you mentioned.




    The important thing is to use rather than read about it IMHO, and hence the provision of the links from my bookmarks to tutorials.

    My favorite is the Linux Administration Handbook by Evi Nemeth et. al

    Also good is Essential System Administration by O'Reilly & Associates.
