Hi everyone. My name is Ryan Shultz, and welcome to my course, Deploying a Linux Web Server for Windows Administrators. I'm an enterprise architect at a data and managed services company, as well as a freelance consultant. I have over 19 years of IT experience that includes storage, virtualization, systems, Linux, Windows, and UNIX web design and multimedia development. As a Windows administrator, you are oftentimes asked to create and administer platforms you don't have experience in. Trying to build a new platform with little or no previous experience can be a daunting task, especially if the platform is as disparate as Linux is from Windows. In this course, we will learn how to deploy an Ubuntu server and install web services. Some of the major topics that we will cover include: Prepare the test environment; install the Ubuntu server instance; perform basic server configuration; configure your web services; and then troubleshooting. By the end of this course, you will be able to start with your bare metal server, or virtual instance, and build a fully functioning Ubuntu server running web services. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the basic concepts and administration of virtualization platforms. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about Linux and installing web services with the Deploying a Linux Web Server for Windows Administrators course, at Pluralsight.
In this course, you will learn by helping a Windows admin install and configure Ubuntu Server. After the installation is complete, you'll then configure a LAMP stack. As a Windows administrator, you will often find yourself in a situation where you are being asked to provide support for an unknown system. One of the most common scenarios is to provide support for a Linux web server. In this course, Deploying a Linux Web Server for Windows Admins you will learn how to deploy an Ubuntu Server with LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) installed. You will start at the very beginning by setting up your lab environment. Next, you'll learn how to install and configure. Finally, you'll learn all about troubleshooting. By the end of this course you will be able to start with your bare metal server or virtual instance and build a fully functioning Ubuntu Server running web services.
