Linux Systems Administration: Services
In this course, you will delve into more advanced systems administration topics and tasks, such as DNS, HTTP, and SMTP. Along with exploring these topics, you will install server software from both packages and source in order to implement these services on their own server.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Understand and manage sysV- and inetd-based services.
- Install and configure the BIND DNS server.
- Create new DNS zones.
- Build and install Apache’s httpd server from a source package.
- Configure Apache’s httpd server using virtual hosts.
- Understand basic concepts related to HTTP.
- Configure a Postfix-based email server.
- Understand basic SMTP concepts.
- Install and configure PHP.
From beginning to end, you will learn by doing Linux-based projects and submitting them for instructor feedback. These projects, as well as the final project, will add to your portfolio and contribute to certificate completion. Besides a browser and Internet connection, all software is provided online by the O’Reilly School of Technology.
This course counts toward the Linux Systems Administration Certificate Series.
Prerequisites: Linux Systems Administration: Networking and Package Management, or equivalent skills. This course is meant for the intermediate or advanced system administrator.
