Linux Server Management

I'm going to show you how to manage a linux server.

I had to learn all of this stuff the hard way. Everytime I asked for help I was told to "Google it" or read some tutorial on Digital Ocean that shows what to do without really explaining "why."

Step-by-step, I'll guide you through everything you need to know.

You don't need to memorize all of this stuff. You just need to have a basic understanding of how linux servers work. Setting up a server is the most difficult part and its not really difficult, just tedious. Once your server is up and running there is very little maintenance required.

In this guide I will explore:

  • Linux Background Information
  • SSH/Shell
  • Server Setup
  • File Management
  • Software Management
  • OS Management
  • User Management
  • Security
  • MYSQL
