Learn to run your own secure web server on Linux.

A beginner’s guide to production Linux is a course aimed at users and developers who want to start running their own web server.

Whilst it’s pretty easy to get a virtual private server and get it running with Linux; straight out of the box many systems won’t be suitable for a production environment, and, may even be susceptible to being hacked.

The course covers configuring and securing a base CentOS 5 install, installing PHP and MySQL and configuring them to work with the Nginx web server.

What you'll learn

  • Configuring and securing a base CentOS 5 install
  • Run production ready servers that can be used commercially to host PHP web applications
