    Best book for Linux / Ubuntu Server

    What is the best book for a beginning trying to learn about managing an Ubuntu server on a VPS? I have basic understanding of Linux but I need something that goes over all the basics to refresh my memory and give me a good base (i.e. user structure / permissions, file structure, PATH variables, processes, security etc.)

    Pretty much a bare bones beginner book that will build up to very intermediate material.

    Thank you in advance!

    Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but a guy at work recently bought this book and was showing it to me - I had a flick through it and thought it looked ok for the beginner ==> Linky
