Where to post beginners questions

Postby marsk » 2016/12/05 15:10:10

Hi
I’m a beginner regarding Linux but I’m working as a Windows server administrator and has done so for nearly twenty years. I have a lot of questions regarding Best Practice for service accounts, running under least privileges and file locations for different types of files.
From time to time I also need to ask about if I have the correct command for a specific purpose.
Can you please help which forum is the best for question lite this from a beginner?

I'd say Software Support. Beginner or expert makes no difference. For commands, I'd still say Software Support unless the question concerns the OS (General Support) or the network (Networking Support). I am quite sure ad Admin will correct me if I'm wrong :) And in any case don't worry: They're not so strict...
Root is evil: Do not use root (sudo) to run any of the commands specified in my posts unless explicitly indicated. Please, provide the necessary amount of context to understand your problem/question.
