LAMP Stack Foundations (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Python) covers topics few developers have opportunity to master. It is a critical learning track for anyone interested in software development or migrating code and apps from a laptop to a live web server for the world to see.

Meet your teachers and learn more about this course by attending our upcoming Test Drive.

Level: Beginner to Intermediate

Maximum Class Size: 5 students to every 1 teacher

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course you will know how to quickly build, secure, deploy, and maintain enterprise-grade Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP server stacks. You will also master critical command line directives, DNS configuration options as well as native and 3rd party mail server deployments. A single LAMP server instance can theoretically host an unlimited number of web sites — server memory (i.e., cost) is the primary limiting factor.

LAMP Stack 101 spans three to five weeks. We meet weekend afternoons and/or weekday evenings (after 7:00 PM) in the Triangle. Total teaching time ranges between 14 and 18 hours, depending on the experience level of students in the course.

  • Class 1 – Mastering the Basics: Prepping Your Laptop and Setting up a Virtual Private Server (VPS)
  • Class 2 – Hands on With The LAMP Stack: LAMP Install and Server Security
  • Class 3 – Domains & Configuring DNS: Domain Names and Creating “A Records”, “MX Records”, and CNAMES
  • Class 4 – Email Hosting: Installing Mail Servers and Integrating 3rd Party Webmail Providers. BONUS MATERIAL: DKIM and SPF Records for Email Authentication
  • Class 5 – Web Site Hosting: Host Multiple Sites on 1 Server Using Apache’s v-hosts file
  • Class 6 – Databases for Web Apps: Intro to SQL and MySQL Database Administration
  • Class X – Intro to Web Programming: Build a “Hello World” Web Page in Python and PHP. Class X will be inter-dispersed with other classes throughout this learning track.
  • Class 7 – Overflow Class: This class will be used to catch-up on course material in the event we’re unable to finish prior classes within a 2 to 3 hour time-frame

Whether you’re managing the IT infrastructure for your company or simply want to create and host your own apps, this track will give you competency in the following areas:

  • DNS and Domain Name Configuration
  • MySQL Database Administration
  • Web Server Administration
  • Email Hosting and Mail Server Administration
  • Linux Command Line and Systems Administration (SysAdmin)
