What are some goals I can set for using Linode to learn about Linux?
I'm interested in using Linode to learn about Linux. Where is a good place to start and what are some projects I can use as goals to start learning?
To start, I would recommend following Linode's Getting Started Guide to become familiar with deploying disk images and accessing your Linode.
Next, there are a few extra steps you can take to significantly increase your servers security and help prevent against intrusion. I've linked my recommendations below.
Stacks and Sites
Once you have successfully secured your server, you will want to learn to configure a basic LAMP stack or LEMP stack to create a webs server, gain a basic understanding of using the command line and play around with some of the most commonly used Linux applications. A common step to follow building a web server is to Host a Website, however, where you go from here is entirely up to you!
Feel free to peruse our Docs for even more projects and guides!
