Today brought more advanced shell scripting as I wrangled with administering users on the new site. This brought me in contact with learning Sed and Awk, as well as some more complicated bash tutorials.
So far I'm finding shell scripting an easy, yet powerful, mechanism for automating web site administration. I'm currently writing a mini-tutorial on what I'm setting up, in case anyone else is interested in creating a development system for web design on their own server.
