You've gotten a new web development client and you are totally psyched!
Wait, what's that? You need to access the server through a terminal and ssh?
Have no fear! You can do it!
Don't fear the terminal! Whatever you can do through a graphical (S)FTP interface you can also do on the command line.
This course will quickly get you up to speed on all the typical commands you will use to:
Just follow sequentially through the lectures and all of the above and more will become clear.
Each command is presented in a separate lecture to make it easy to digest and easy to find again when you want to use the course like a reference guide.
Each command is fully demonstrated in a High Definition screen cast.
I personally guarantee that after you take this course you will be able to complete all the tasks you were formerly able to do only through a graphical interface. If you find that you are not able to do the things you could have otherwise done with a graphical interface, I will work one-on-one with you to help you through your challenge and will add that information to the course.
The skills you will be learning in this course are for working in a *nix operating system environment.

Having to use the command line instead of a graphical user interface (GUI) can induce anxiety, as one has to operate in an unfamiliar environment. But, there's no need to fear the terminal! Even if you weren't alive when MS-DOS was in its heyday (yes, even before Windows 3.1) and have only ever used a GUI, you will be able to follow along step-by-step as I show you the most useful commands to transfer and manage files.
Even though my first introduction to a computer was a Commodore Vic-20, I was a bit nervous about having to switch from using a graphical FTP client to using the terminal. But, I found out pretty quickly that it wasn't too bad at all! Now I love to use the terminal and the command line. I look forward to helping you move from GUI to terminal with ease.
The course is organized to take you step-by-step from setting up the pieces on your local computer to managing files on a remote server. Just proceed sequentially through the lectures in the "Most Used Commands" sections and you will be transferring and managing files from the command line before you know it!
Feel free to solve the problems either in your head or by testing them in the terminal.
This lecture will look at creating a database and deleting a database. You could probably almost guess the commands you have to use just by looking at those two sentences! You’ll be right on your way in no time.
Tables are what stores the data in a database. Many content management systems will automatically create tables for you when you install them. This lecture will give you a brief introduction on how you can create them on your own.
I spend additional time in this lecture explaining how I used the documentation so that you can begin to understand how to interpret the significance of the way the grammar for the commands is written.
Solidify your understanding and build your skills by creating a Database, a User and assigning Privileges as specified in the lecture
You may find that certain queries you are running could benefit from being able to access a table more efficiently. Adding an index can save a lot of CPU cycles when selecting data from a table and is an example of something you accomplish by altering an existing table.
This lecture covers adding an index as well as some other typical table alters.
Prepare to be amazed as I show you some clever techniques to harvest information from your database and to accomplish some tedious tasks with the power of the command line!
Explain what the given commands are doing.
I work hard to make this course the best that it can be and I want it to be absolutely delightful for you. The best way for me to ensure that I am meeting these goals is to hear from you! Let me know what you like and what you'd like to see improved; I really do listen!

I was an AS/400 RPG application developer from 1989 - 2001. Then I pursued some other life interests, including teaching High School math, before returning to programming in 2010. I spent approximately 6 months, 7 days a week for 12 hours a day teaching myself to use the Drupal content management system prior to launching my web development business in July of 2010. Since that time I have become a highly sought after Drupal web developer. I specialize in using Drupal as a framework to build custom web applications for clients.
My "Drupal nick" is vegantriathlete.
I am both a vegan and a triathlete and successfully completed my first IronMan distance triathlon on August 2, 2015.
