9.4. Local Resources

Usually distributions install some documentation on your system. Usually they are located in /usr/share/doc/packages or /usr/local/share/doc

The software products mentioned here provide a lot of documentation in their source-directories. Apache does install its documentation in the default DocumentRoot /usr/local/apache/htdocs/manual

9.5. Web Sites

There are a large number of informative web sites available. By their very nature they change quickly, so do not be surprised if these links become outdated very fast.

A good starting point is of course the Linux Documentation Project home page, a central information repository for documentation, project pages and much more.

To get more information about the Software mentioned in this document, then the following sites are good starting points.

Please let me know if you have any other leads that can be of interest.
