LINUX basics of administration

Linux is quickly installed on the server, but routinely administering Linux requires a basic understanding of the operating system, the tools and the underlying logic. This training course offers the ideal introduction for prospective administrators who have already gained initial experience and now want to learn the experience of Linux administration together with experts.

Goal setting

After this seminar you will be familiar with the operating system, understand the background of the directory structure and be able to make your Linux computer safe and stable for everyday use. The seminar teaches you the basic principle of a Linux system:
Process management, package/software management, rights and user management.
At the end you will have mastered the most important programs and commands and you will be able to make your work easier with shell scripts. So you can face a solid administration of Linux.
