Data Unix Virgin

Hi Unix Gurus,

I am new to Unix.

My Project Manager has said that he wants me to assist in the configuration of Unix Web Servers.

What does this entail exactly?

What research can I do to prepare me for this first dabble with Unix?

Any help would be appreciated.
I have not been given any sort of H/W document.
All I know is that we use Digital Unix Ver 4.

Well first things first.

1) Find out what kind of web server software you will be useing.
2) Familiarize yourself with the configuration (if your to be the admin)
3) Check out there homepage

If you are left to make the decisition on a web server. This is a tuff call. Some people really like Netscape enterprise server, but a free webserver that i think a Majority ? of us run is Apache. It has all the features you could want and more. plus its free and there is more then ample documentation for it. (If you go the apache route check out Oreilly's book on Apache) its a great book and not all that big either.

I might also add that you may want to start brushing up on regular commands and text editors! But I also recommend Apache! So many options, so little time....
