This course offers an in-depth, hands-on overview of setting up and configuring a production web server, using Linode or Digital Ocean. Virtual Cloud Servers have become the industry standard for hosting web applications of all sizes and complexity. This includes small static web pages, to dynamic, database driven web sites that handle thousands of simultaneous processes. Regardless of the project, virtual servers offer a solution that provides web developers a scalable infrastructure that can easily adapt to a changing environment.
The course starts with an overview of the registration process on Linode. From there, students quickly jump into deploying and configuring a server using the latest Ubuntu LTS distribution. Students will become familiar with the Linode admin interface, and start executing basic commands using the web based remote access console. We then explore remote access administration using more complex tools such as PuTTY for Windows, and Terminal for MAC.
Students will install and configure LAMP Stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PhpMyAdmin) on the Ubuntu server. We show students how to secure the server through SSH Authentication, directory permissions, and disable root user access.
The course explores remote visual desktop configuration using TightVNC & RealVNC.
Once students have a firm handle on server configuration on Linode, we take a look at another major cloud provider – Digital Ocean. This section of the course provides an overview of the Digital Ocean Admin panel where students will deploy and configure a “Droplet”. We will explore some of the unique features Digital Ocean offers, such as Floating IP’s and Space storage.
Students learn to backup, resize, and configure DNS Zone files on both cloud hosting providers.

This was a great introductory course into setting up the Linode and Digital Ocean cloud platforms. The author spoke very good English, presented the information very clearly, and moved along at a proper pace.
Good basic course to configure and use linode. Course title states, is a Linode and Digitalocean course, but I only see Linode introdutions. Also, I would like to have a transcripts.
more often than not i would have to pause the video to write all the commands. incredibly time consuming course thank god i didn't pay for it , would be nice if there was an open source server to use as i just had trouble with the bank regarding the usage of my credit card to pay for LINODE
Kursus ini memberikan beberapa pengetahuan baru ketika menggunakan sebuah cloud server dan berguna untuk selanjutnya diterapkan. Tapi ada juga beberapa hal yang kurang dijelaskan padahal penting. Meski pun begitu, kursus ini sangat cocok diikuti oleh pemula yang ingin memulai mencoba menggunakan cloud server.
Excellent course. I thought the instructor did a good job explaining every thing. I was aware of some of the tools like PuTTy from previous jobs, but I thought that was just an internal process. I'm launching web applications I've previously built and struggled to find a way to launch them online. This course is sending me in the right direction to get everything going. The only improvement would be to maybe have a sample project to add to the droplet so we can see it go from the default page to a new project. Other than that, great course, highly recommended.
Très bon cours et très bien détaillé; je le conseille vraiment si vous voulez vous lancez dans la configuration d'un VPS à bon prix, merci et encore Bravo
Followed the "Deploying a Virtual Server on Digital Ocean" section. Simple explanation. No steps missed. Very easy to follow. Highly recommended.
