About This Class

aeb8f7d7

This class will walk you through all the steps to hosting from signup on Google Cloud Platform, to configuring a virtual machine using a Bitnami LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) Stack, Uploading basic HTML, CSS & JavaScript files, Installing Wordpress, configuring CloudFlare, setting up multiple sites and sub-domains with virtual hosts (vhosts).

Here are downloadable resources of common terminal commands we'll use throughout this class:  petervcook.com/blog/skillshare/

Along the way you'll be introduced to several other free tools. If you are currently hosting your website on another hosting provider (such as Dreamhost, BlueHost, HostGator, MediaTemple, GoDaddy or others) you may be paying over $200 a year to host your site.
