When learning a non-trivial subject, RTFM and STFW can require a lot of
effort -- especially the latter, as the WWW is full of incomplete,
obsolete, and contradictory information.
I am willing to pay a reasonable price for a printed book that contains
current information, organizes it, and presents it in a rational order.
Lucas writes such books, and I own eleven of them.
I do not recall ever encountering an error when entering an example from
a Lucas book. (But, I have not entered every command from every book.)
When I wanted jails for my SOHO server, I read Lucas and choose the
jail(8) option. My server is running 24x7 without issues.
I believe I attempted ezjail for a second server, but ran into problems
with the software not being unsupported on 12.1-RELEASE (?).
I have not tried iocage.
