What are the requirements?

  • Students must have access to an extra computer that can be used as a Linux Server, or an operating system capable of running CentOS as a virtual machine through VirtualBox. If you have any questions about course requirements, please send me a private message.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Create and run your very own Linux server (in minutes!)
  • Install CentOS 7 from scratch, including how to run it in VirtualBox!
  • Dominate the Linux shell with essential server commands

  • This course is designed for beginners, especially users who have never installed or operated a CentOS Linux Server.

Intermediate users are encouraged to enroll at their own discretion. For example, if they are in need of a basic knowledge of RAID, SSH, Samba, cron jobs, and/or Apache.
  • Advanced users will already know how to use such features and are therefore discouraged from enrolling in this course.
