Content and Overview

Suitable for beginning system administrators with zero experience in Linux administration. Through this course of 46 lectures (will be adding more regularly) you’ll learn all of the fundamentals of web server administration, and gain experience in setting up Linux server OS and LAMP stack. Each chapter is packed with step-by-step guides which will put your new learned skills into practical use immediately.

You will start with choosing the right platform for your server. Then you will install Debian Linux OS to the server and set up the LAMP stack. After that you will configure multiple Apache virtual hosts and Nginx server blocks, create your first MySQL/MariaDB user and database, and finally you will install WordPress to your new server.

Students completing the course will have the knowledge and skills to set up and administrate their personal server.

Note, that this course shares some basic theoretical content from my other course “CentOS Linux Server Setup Essentials for Webhosting and More”, but all the practical lessons are being designed for Debian Linux.

Working through all the lections and command-line commands, you’ll be able to instantly put the knowledge into practice, and will receive a verifiable certificate of completion upon finishing the course.
