New Udemy Courses

I published two new courses on Udemy. These courses are similar. Each walk students through the process of setting up domain names and configuring DNS for those domain names. Each has an in-depth discussion of Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP. The LAMP Stack fundamentals has a deeper dive into Linux and the rest of the LAMP Stack.

The WordPress course has a deeper dive into setting up email with a custom domain as well as an introduction to cloud hosting and a detailed look at AWS Lightsail.

WordPress is then installed and upgraded to version 5. I then show how to build websites for troysicecream.com and rvleisure.com on the same Ubuntu server in AWS Lightsail.
