The Absolute Beginners Course to Setting Up Multiple Blazingly Fast WordPress Sites Using Nginx
NGINX is a high performance web server that is responsible for serving almost all of the most popular sites in the world.
This is a beginners course that assumes you have no knowledge configuring NGINX.
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.
After security we need to look at optimization. Speed is everything and NGINX delivers WordPress sites at blazingly fast speeds. We will use a varied approach to optimization – command lines tools, nginx “caching” directives – you can be assured – your page speed scores will sky rocket…
By the end of this course, you will be ready to reap the benefits.
Add a new revenue stream and start earning additional income hosting your own sites using NGINX. There will be numerous new services you will be adding to your resume as a web developer. You will be able to charge for numerous new services – site hosting, site optimization, ssl certificate installation and renewal, backups and even a monthly maintenance fee.
All that’s left is for you to sign up for this course and start your wonderful journey as your very own system administrator running multiple WordPress sites on a NGINX server.
