Your background with Linux and system administration served as a good foundation to start your career. However, you may now be asking “what’s next”? This Learning Path will provide you with the necessary knowledge and experience needed to demonstrate your value to any organization needing more experienced system administration ability.
The Linux job market continues to expand and this course will help prepare you for one of the standard industry Linux administration certifications. This course has been updated in 2018 with a new list of domains and competencies matching those detailed by the Linux Foundation for v3.18.
So you have heard that systemd is the new way that services and daemons are managed on a Linux system. Most of the popular distributions have already adopted it, and now you need to learn how to use it. Follow along with us as we explore the history of this Linux subsystem and why we have it now. You will even learn how to use systemd to create your own service files, and see how much simpler it is to use compared to the older init system.
In this course, you will learn how to install, configure, and customize NGINX for a wide variety of uses. While following along with lessons, you will be educated in how to use the NGINX documentation to assist you as you work with NGINX. By the end of the course, you will have experienced configuring NGINX as a web server, reverse proxy, cache, and load balancer while also having learned how to compile additional modules, tune for performance, and integrate with third-party tools like Let's Encrypt.
The Structured Query Language (or SQL) is how we both define and manipulate data within a traditional Relational Database Management System (or RDBMS). In this course, we are going to learn how to structure SQL statements that do just that. Learn how to create databases, manage access, create tables, insert and update data, create indexes and more. We will demonstrate SQL functions and talk about how they differ from the more traditional SQL statements. All of this will be accomplished at a SQL command line within MySQL, but will apply equally to SQL compliant RDBMS systems in general.
This learning path is only available to Linux Academy members.
