LinOxide is a blog platform where we publish howto articles and guides on linux and unix based distros. This portal will include tips & tricks, command line commands, opensource tools and server administration on FOSS (Free Open Source Software) technologies.

It's a knowledge base where we share all information we have learned from our experience to the public. Hope this online technical website help our fellow readers all over the web to become a better linux user. We really appreciate all our friends / authors / community for advice, knowledge and time towards each article published here. We welcome your comments on our articles as it helps us to improve.

Its always fun to play around on nix servers until your Boss throw you out :-). Just kidding!! (Update 2017 - Now I dont care if my server/instance goes down as I can scale or spin new nodes/instance in a few seconds).

Early in 2006 website was running in Punbb Forum named as "ExpertsLogin", a nice and light weight forum. Then its been changed to blog format in 2008. Initially website was powered under Centos under shared hosting as we had no revenue to host website on dedicated server or vps.

In 2013 we rebranded ExpertsLogin to a new name "LinOxide". We also change website theme and said goodbye to shared web hosting. Now its running on cloud hosting were we fully manage ourself.
