Linux Professional Institute Certification LPIC-1 Exam 117-101

Linux Installation and Initial Configuration

This course will help you see how much you can enjoy system administration, and how there is a life outside of your current role. Linux is prevalent, it is at the heart of “the cloud” and is hosting companies both big and small. In a recent survey, 93-percent of employers suggested that they plan to hire a Linux professional. This course is designed to get you up and running with Linux starting with the install, and passing through to basic management such as installing software and managing the file system. Being able to see these tasks completed in different Linux flavors will help you understand which Linux distribution is best for you, and prepare you for the vendor neutral certification for the LPI (Linux Professional Institute). This is an administration course, so basic concepts of system administration are expected, but prior knowledge of Linux or Unix systems is not required. We at Pluralsight would like you to again understand the enjoyment that system administration once gave you.

Linux Command Line (CLI) Fundamentals

Mastering the command line is so important when it comes to managing the Linux Server. Very often there will be no GUI and all access is via SSH from PuTTY or another client. You will soon learn the speed at which tasks can be achieved from the CLI and why it is so powerful. You may be used to the up arrow key for your Windows history, but the Linux history is so much more. Searching and reading from files is quick and easy, and many tools will be covered giving you the skills you need to manage your servers and desktops
