As a PeopleSoft Admin or even a PeopleSoft developer and/or Database Admin, you do not need to to master the OS. This is because you most likely will never have to perform the OS system admin role and you just need to know enough to be dangerous. For your reference, we’re providing a cheat sheet that will help you remember helpful Linux commands, whether you’re new to Linux or could just use a refresher.
There are 2 books I would like to recommend on the topic:
- A Practical Guide to Linux Commands, Editors, and Shell Programming
- UNIX and Linux System Administration Handbook
The cheat sheet organizes a ton of commands into 13 categories, so you can see at a glance how to call up system information, install packages, and manipulate files. It’s available at LinOxide in PDF format and there’s a more detailed reference guide there as well, but below in the post is the image you can just right-click to save (courtesy LinOxide).
Linux users might notice some commands are not on this sheet, such as sudo and man, so for a more thorough listing of commands, head to this list at Github. LinOxide’s downloadable sheet is still a handy reference to have by your side when you’re getting started with Linux.
