Tools used during the course.

Graphical user interfaces are great for many things, but many system management tasks, especially if they involve automation, still require the command line.

  • In Linux and macOS, this will be called the Terminal.
  • In Windows, the built-in terminal is called the Command Terminal, or we can also use Power Shell.

The main things we need to know are:

  • How to move around in the directories
  • How to manage the environment variables
  • How to run commands in the background
  • How to see what is running
  • How to kill processes we no longer want to be running
