    I have detailed notes on my web site about Wordpress, Ubuntu, Apache, MariaDB, and PHP. My new servers are VMWare 6U3 VMs. I created 4 hard drives.

    /boot 2GB
    / 25GB for MariaDB 10.3.x
    /var 250GB and 330GB on the two servers
    swap 4GB

    I wanted a easier way to expand the /var website partitions. I have detailed notes on how I installed each component. Check out the Wordpress and Linux sections.

    my website

    Ubuntu 16.04.5
    Apache 2.4.38
    MariaDB 10.3.12
    PHP 7.3.2.3

    I have rebuilt my Wordpress servers on Ubuntu 16.04.5 from CentOS 7. Ubuntu is over 2x as fast backing up the VMs to eSATA drives in VEAAM. Ubuntu 18.04 is almost 1 years old. I read an article that it will have LTS 10 year support instead of the 5 year of 16.04. Who is using 18.04 Server? I don't use GUI so GNOME doesn't do much for me. That was the biggest thing I read about 18.04, Unity is gone, GNOME is back. Who is using 18.04 and for what?

    I bought the CompTIA Linux+ books and Practice Exams. I used Sybex and Kaplan when I took and failed the 103 exam. The CompTIA books are much more complete. Their practice exam blows away Kaplan. I won't use the Kaplan exams ever again.

    I have been busy working on my CompTIA Linux+ exams. I bought CompTIA's book and Practice Exam. I will be retaking my 103 exam in a week or so. I created two new Ubuntu 16.04.5 Wordpress servers and migrated my web sites to them. I fixed all the links for https://wp.scsiraidguru.com so all the simulation pages work now.

    Uninstall Exchange from your server. Reboot it. You use ADSIEdit to clean up your Directory services. Did you migrate all your existing mail to an archive solution? You can't copy it into O365 and get it to archive.

    The problem will be with your ISP at home. WOW and AT&T both shut off my internet when they detected a Windows Server access it. They told me even for my MCSE studies they wouldn't allow a Windows Server on a home ISP circuit.

    I installed CentOS 7 and Ubuntu 16.04. servers. You need to know and have both. I did WordPress on both. This forced me to learn LAMP: Linux, Apache, MySQL (MariaDB) and PHP. I built a repository for the latest MariaDB. I installed the latest PHP. I can now play with Yum and Apt-Get. Installing partitions and network is different on both. I upgraded them to IPv6 for Cisco CCNP. I would do all the Linux+ and various Linux sections in other parts of the course list. From what I understand, you need to really know vi for the Linux+ exams.

    I am seeing more of ITIL on Linkedin. What is it? What is the exam order to study for? Next month I want to finish my Linux+ and CCNP Route exams.

    I would still do CCENT to get the foundation down.
