The Perfect Nginx Server – Ubuntu Edition
$89.99 Track price
This is a beginners course that assumes you have no knowledge configuring a Linux server or NGINX.
Updated to Ubuntu 20.04…
NGINX is a high performance web server that is responsible for serving almost all of the most popular sites in the world.
We start with a blank slate and layer by layer configure the perfect nginx server. I will teach you, step by step, to a point where you will have the skill, knowledge and confidence to host multiple secure WordPress sites, on an unmanaged Virtual Private Server, using nginx. You will need no support from your host. You will be your own system administrator.
This course covers the entire spectrum of configuring an Ubuntu based NGINX server. We will cover everything from initial server configuration to installing NGINX, MariaDB and php7.x. Once installed, we will configure, secure and optimize nginx, MariaDB and php7.x. The WordPress sites we create also need to be installed, secured and optimized. Then we move on to installing SSL certificates and plugin free backups.
The most important aspect of any server is security. I don’t just glance over this aspect, every configuration step you will take is geared towards security. Some of the security aspects included in the course are: SSH Keys, the firewall, fail2ban, changing dangerous default settings and NGINX deny directives. These are just some of the steps we are going to use in securing your server and your sites. Installing a WordPress security plugin does not secure your server or your WordPress site. Some security plugins are a source of vulnerabilities themselves.

Andrew is a fine teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable in this subject and fills all gaps and holes in this journey of setting up the perfect server. Not only does he hand hold at every step, but also takes all queries seriously and is very prompt at replying and clearing doubts & concepts whenever they are thrown at him. His passion not only for the subject but to teach others is clearly seen from his lectures and his level of commitment to solving the minutest queries of his students! Wish to see more courses from you! Thanks for everything!

This is THE course on how to use Ubuntu and Nginx to have a stable, secure, and fast WordPress site. Andrew answers all the questions almost immediately. That alone worth 10x the price!
David Maruska –
This has been excellent so far. Lots of details that I knew nothing about. Completely new to Linux and web servers.

I learnt so much taking this course. I’ve never configured a server before and had only limited Linux skills before taking this course. Now I have finished the course, I have a secured a fast (it really is blazingly fast) server running wordpress and my new website. Improved my Linux skills along the way and I am confident that I can replicate the server if/when I need to. Andrew answers any Q’s super fast too. I have now gone on and purchased another of his courses and will buy any future course he produces (that should tell you everything you need to know, if you are still deciding!). Super course, buy it, learn it you won’t be disappointed.

Really great Course!

I’m very happy I found this course at the exact time I needed to switch off of a shared server to a VPS in order to host a wordpress based social networking platform. For a second I though I was way in over my head but now I’m confident I am setting up a well oiled machine of a server with Andrew’s thorough instructions and lightning fast responses to my questions!

Yes, it was exactly what I was looking for. The instructor delivers what he promises. I am new to Linux and Nginx but still, I was able to breeze through the course. AWESOME!
Matt Olson –
I just started, and I got to say, you are a great professor, thank you for taking the time
MK Lim –
I have finished Andrew’s all 3 courses, all above my expectation. I have deeply understanding and confident to set up a CentOS or Ubuntu Linux VPS for WordPress site using NGINX. Andrew is a good teacher, very active in Q&A, he answered all my questions. Highly recommend all of these courses. Thank you
David Ash –

This course is pure gold. Andrew is more than a great instructor. He replies to EVERY SINGLE question in QA and he usually does it within hours, not days! This course definitely delivers what it promises. You will install, configure and run your very own Nginx servers and sites. But for me, this course was just the first step. Andrew made me curious about Linux, using the terminal, writing bash scripts, and more. And now I’m writing my own scripts, automating tasks, learning new Linux commands, making mistakes and learning how to avoid them. I’ve never met Andrew but I’m forever thankful to him for making this course and helping me and others along the way.
Andrew is a Linux Guru! I’m very appreciated to him for these courses. I’ve taken 2. For me all was clear from start to finish! 5 stars definitely ! Look forward to next courses ‘in deep’ ! Thank You Andrew!

Excellent teacher, course and support. Would have saved me months of pain and also lots of money, had I found this earlier.

Yes, that is exactly what I needed.

The best course so far. He is selfless and gave his best. Almost got lost, but his prompt reply to questions was wonderful. I am happy I took this course.
Fred Hudson –
I wish I could give Andrew 10 stars! I have learned a lot and have gained a lot of confidence and knowledge with Ubuntu, WordPress, and Nginx. Andrew is a very knowledgeable instructor who breaks down on all the steps and explains every step thoroughly. I used to shy away from scripts and command lines and Linux operating systems, not anymore!
Stefano Pesce –
A great course, exactly what I was looking for. Andrew is extremely competent and could provide all the knowledge of needed while putting your hands to work. I feel confident now to host my own sites, and I have the feeling that I better grasp how NGINX and Linux work behind the scenes. I’ll take the course a second time to consolidate my knowledge, and also because is very pleasant and never boring.
Gregory Kohlhof –
Andrew Eaton is outstanding teacher and answers questions promptly and quickly. I highly recommend any of his courses.
Anunay Sinha –
Absolutely Brilliant way of teaching
Danny Avery –
The course had some great training, but the update that was made to it really messed it up and made it disorganized. It doesn’t flow and isn’t as easy to follow with the partial updates. Also, a single resource to download would be a lot easier to follow and keep for future use. I was excited to learn how to use FileZilla to access files on my server. Course has a lot of great content! Thanks!
