I'm in need of some money for some of my recent web projects, so I would like to offer my services for one-time (or repeat) jobs related to *nix system administration. I am not interested in becoming an employee of any company right now. I'm currently sixteen years old as a junior in high school. As for my academic status, I am enrolled in all Honors and AP (Advanced Placement) classes and have a cumulative 4+ GPA throughout high school.
I have not worked as an official employee of any hosting company, but I have been doing one-time system administration jobs for various individuals for quite a few years now.
I have rather extensive (considering my age) experience setting up, securing, and managing most aspects of a production web server. I'm well versed with the *nix command line as well as cPanel and DirectAdmin (preferred) servers. I have the most experience with Red Hat based distributions, such as CentOS.
Once again, I am not looking for a long-term relationship with any company right now. I would like a few one-time system administration jobs to generate some income for my web projects. I'm a hard working individual that gets the job done in a prompt and professional manner.
If you are interested, please contact me with the information specified in my profile or my email ([email protected]).
I've worked with Orien in the past setting up servers for various communities and his work is top-notch. I can completely vouch for the quality of his work.
Shayan, thank you for your comment!
I got an email asking me for more information on what I have experience with on a production web server and since I can't edit my original post any more, I'll add them here.
DirectAdmin (all -- initial setup, optimization, configuration, etc.)
cPanel/WHM (all -- initial setup, optimization, configuration, etc.)
PHP 4.x/5.x (+ setup/config of various accelerators including eAccelerator, XCache, etc.)
iptables (+ APF/CSF - iptables frontends)
This is by no means a comprehensive list of my abilities, but it does provide a general idea of what I'm most comfortable with. However, I'm a very fast learner and can tackle various projects regardless of their required scope of knowledge.
