Administering Linux servers is often command line based which may be a challenge for new administrators. In this course, RHEL 8: Using Essential Tools, you’ll learn to access and manage the command line shell. First, you’ll explore the command line and executing commands. Next, you’ll discover searching text files using regular expressions. Finally, you’ll learn how to secure the filesystem using permissions. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of Linux administration needed to work directly from the command line.

Course Overview Hello everyone, and welcome. My name is Andrew Mallett, and yes, you are just minutes away from starting your journey in learning Linux. Let me introduce to you my latest course, RHEL 8: Using Essential Tools. In theU.K., I'm the owner of the Urban Penguin, training and consulting in Linux, and I've been doing this now for many years, working both as a system administrator and a dabbling developer. Now, you know as well as I do that the use of Linux is on the increase, and you want a certification that tests you on what you actually know and can do, not just what you read from a book. Both the Linux Foundation and the Red Hat certifications are performance‑based, testing you on a live running system. I have designed this course for you to get you up and running with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, both quickly and effectively, and makes up the first in a series of courses to get you through the exam. Now, of course, we're going to be covering a huge amount of topics, but some of those topics include installing RHEL 8 or using Vagrant virtual machines, working at the command line with files and directories, setting up permissions and ownership of files, running commands both locally and remotely. And, do you know, by the end of this course, you'll know how to install and run commands on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8‑based systems. You'll know how to register for a free developers subscription so you're able to learn on the same enterprise product that you need to know for work. Not wanting to stop here, you're going to be able to read and search text files using regular expressions, and your skills will quickly develop, and you'll be the Linux maestro that you've always imagined. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with some of the concepts of system administration, or at least have these as your goal.
