Managing and maintaining Linux-based operating systems is called Linux administration. Administrators are in charge of things like setting up the system, managing users, making sure it is secure, getting changes, and fixing problems. They set up and watch over computers, networks, and services with the help of command-line interfaces and graphical tools. Administrators of Linux make sure the system is stable, improve its speed, and add security measures to protect it from threats. They work with different distributions like Ubuntu, CentOS, and Red Hat and often set up web servers, databases, and other apps. For successful Linux administration, you need to know how to use shell scripting, networking, and system monitoring tools. This lets servers and infrastructure run reliably and securely.
