This course introduces you to the administration of a Linux system that you'll be
using as a network server. Topics include user accounts, connecting to the network (including
networking fundamentals), starting and stopping services, running regular jobs, installing
software and taking backups.
This course is an ideal grounding for you if you're going to be looking after a Linux server on
your network. We can't cover everything in a day - web server admins should stay on for our
Linux Web Server
day, and you may also want to look at further more specialist training if you'll be responsible
for email servers, firewalls, looking after naming services, etc.
Knowledge of basic use of Linux (or Solaris, Mac OS X or another flavour of Unix)
as taught on our Linux Basics
Getting the most from your Well House Consultants course
The Linux operating system is commonly used on Web servers - and
many other server too - to provide the background services on that computer.
We offer a Linux basics day for staff who are going to be involved in
uploading and configuring web applications, a Linux Admin day for staff
who are going to take some responsibility for server configuration and
maintainance too, and a selection of courses on installation and administration
of the web server software. This course covers the administration
necessary to look after a web server within an existin network, but
does not cover general Linux administration in great depth - please ask us
if you need training which includes subject such as name services, network
configuration, firewall setup, mail servers, etc.
