Presenting the Linode Library

July 30, 2009 3:31 pm

We’re pleased to announce the formal launch of the Linode Library, a new resource aimed at helping beginners and experienced admins alike find answers to common Linux questions.

Focusing on common use cases like getting started or installing a LAMP server, our goal is to provide end-to-end solutions from the first Linode Manager log in to a production-ready server.

The Library was “soft launched” last Friday, which allowed us to collect a lot of useful feedback from regulars in our IRC channel prior to this announcement. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their feedback, and look forward to continued suggestions for improving the site.

The docs team can be reached at docs@linode.com.  Please feel free to suggest new content or point out corrections for our existing documentation.

  1. Congratulations once more.

    What’s the plan for Linode wiki? is going to merge with this library or Linode library is going to supersede it or something?

  2. The library and wiki really meet different needs. We’re planning on redirecting some wiki entries to library articles, but the wiki won’t be going away. It will continue to serve as a place where the community can post their custom setup instructions and other documents that don’t fit precisely with the library’s goals.

  3. I’m a new linode user and I used the library last night to get my site up and running in just a few hours. It works great. Thanks a lot.

  4. Thanks, this looks very useful.

    Information on hardening a system would be much appreciated

  5. My shared hosting plan expires in ~ 6 months and after that, I’ll host with linode. I’m a n00b, and this library is what I needed!
