DESCRIPTION
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.
PREREQUISITES
Knowledge of basic use of Linux (or Solaris, Mac OS X or another flavour of Unix) as taught on our Linux Basics training course.

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.
