I have been running a small web hosting company for about 6 years, I have learned quite a bit myself about Linux without any training except help from message boards and a few admins who have helped me here and there. One thing I do not have is any programming knowledge of any type, no ability to write any type of script etc.
I am thinking about trying to get out of my dead end helpdesk position I am currently in and moving into something more Linux related which I think I will enjoy more than what I am doing now (Currently make about 40k/yr in Boston) and allow me to advance my career.
I have good knowledge of LAMP and can manage them well without the need of any control panel and have what I would consider advanced knowledge of troubleshooting issues with web servers.
What I would like to know is where I should start in getting myself prepared, I purchased a Linux+ video training set which I have been studying and will go for my Linux+ soon.
What do you think the next best step for me is? Should I go RHCE or at these better less costly options I could use?
Ideally I would love to work with web servers, but would be willing to do anything that deals with system administration.
Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance for any help
