DESCRIPTION
This course is an introduction to Linux for anyone who'll be installing or maintaining a web site on a Linux server, or who will be deploying web based applications on the server.

The course covers the structure of a Linux based server system and the fundamentals of the operating system - creating directories, navigation, examining, copying and deleting files, setting file access, and so on. A short section on the vi editor teaches you how to make simple changes to files without having to upload new copies, and a brief reminder / overview of HTML ensures you have the knowledge to check out and update a user's web site. The course then covers the utilities that you'll use to upload and access your website from your own desktop, such as telnet and ssh, and tools such as tar, gzip and ftp used in file transfer.

The concluding exercise on this course has you uploading a website onto a pre-configured Linux server, making some alterations, testing them and checking the server log files.

This is an intensive one day course that covers the use of Linux on web servers. It does not cover the Linux Windowing environments since most users will be accessing Linux on a server via a network
PREREQUISITES
You must be a competent computer user. Further experience is helpful, but this course is run for small groups and is tailored to fill in gaps in your knowledge.
