Shell commands are the last resort of fixing a problem on your server. In order not to destroy the whole server, you will want to know what you are doing. Many commands are available to manage your Linux server, but most will be useless to get your site working. Of the few that are useful, some will be risky, others are merely informational.
Some hosting companies have no idea as to what their servers need and how to manage them, others are perfectly fine.
Here we will discuss the few commands that are useful to get your Joomla installation up and running on a poorly configured server.
Presenter: Henk von Pickartz
Henk von Pickartz started in 1985 with computers and programming on a 80286 using the few tools available at the time. He is mostly self taught, because “back in those days” there were no diplomas or degrees in computer science. He has used all kinds of languages since, from hardcore assembly to more user friendly Pascal, Delphi and later php. In his free time he prefers to take pictures of nature, culture and wildlife, wherever he finds himself in the world. Currently he works for a Business Building company in Canada, where he is the main developer of new products and ideas.
