Curriculum Development Document



To be an effective web admin in Linux, you only have to:

  • know how to log in
  • move files around
  • Understand basics of security and backup

Because everything is treated like a file in a computer system.

Logging In

  • Use ssh
  • Using a key is more secure, and allows you to log in without using a password. See how to create a key - [1]
  • For example, when you set up an automated process, you want to use your key, not password?
