Linux is more than a niche alternative. It's popular for desktops and crucial for software development. CentOS is a Linux distribution (derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux) that is popular with system admins, dev ops engineers, and home users alike. This course shows you how to install and make your way around CentOS 7, perform common tasks from the command line, and get a firewall, a web server, and shared folders up and running. Author Scott Simpson also discusses security-enhanced Linux (SELinux), which adds an additional level of security to CentOS.
Hi, I'm Scott Simpson and welcome to Up and Running with CentOS Linux. CentOS is a popular distribution of Linux that's derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux and is supported by the community. If you're a system administrator, devops engineer, developer, or you're just hacking around on your own projects, you're likely to come across CentOS as you work with different environments. It's always a good idea to be prepared to tackle a new platform.
And that's what this course is for. I'll show you how to get CentOS running and guide you through some of the basic administration tasks at the command line. I'll show you some platform-specific concerns, and how to get some popular services going in a CentOS environment. This course is intended as an introduction, to get you familiar with the system, so you're prepared to extend your knowledge to solve new problems. Let's get up and running, with CentOS Linux.
