Product Description

In this book I will describe how you can turn an ageing computer into an always-on server that can run web applications in the comfort of your own home or office. Together we will configure the entire server: you will learn how to install CentOS, Apache, PHP and MySQL (or MariaDB) and WordPress. I will show you how you can reach your server from other computers on the network and how to create regular backups.

Perfect for the Linux newbie and those who want to get started with web applications without going "to the cloud".

5Great, But Annoying
By Robert Butler
Great book, but NEVER, EVER in listing step-by-step instructions, after a step, say, but don't do that step now because you have to do something really important first as you did here "Now the orange icon disappears, and the previously greyed out Begin Installation button at the bottom right is now available. Don’t click it yet though, we still need to setup your network connection." Yes, people when going step-by-step DO try to move too fast. Deal with it. Also, including your copyright information in the clipboard output of any command line prompt you want to copy and paste from your ebook version is REALLY annoying and really inhibits the practical use of the book. You can't even copyright Linux command line prompts anyways. Please correct ASAP as these annoyances really distract from an otherwise great book!
