Build practical skills in CentOS Linux installation and web server setup with this tutorial for beginners.
Although we make all the tutorials and demonstrations on CentOS operating system, note that CentOS explicitly aims for complete binary compatibility with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). The only real difference is that CentOS has the branding-related packages from RHEL replaced with recompiled versions from the sources provided by Red Hat.
So learning CentOS is 99% the same as learning Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).
In this course you will learn about:
- Physical dedicated server set up
- DigitalOcean and Amazon Web Services virtual private server set up
- CentOS 7 Linux operating system installation
- Apache / Nginx web server, MariaDB database and PHP installation
- Oracle VirtualBox installation to create your own VDS host server
- Configure FTP sever, firewall (with firewalld) and backups with Rsync
- And much more tweaks in the upcoming monthly updates, including but no limited to tuning the web server for low RAM systems, applying security tweaks to your server to make it less vulnerable to external attacks etc.
