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
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.
