    New to server and networking

    I can write VB6 and Free Pascal(under Lazarus IDE with Firebird), but it was only in Windows stand-alone computer in the past.
    My office has migrated to use Fedora 30 Workstation and LibreOffice.
    Next, I will have a small server for Fedora 30 Server.
    In order to manage networking and server by myself, what is the first step I have to learn from and what should be next ?

    Hmmm, sounds like you are in an office of a company that needs to make a profit.
    Hence, I assume that they don't have a time for you to spend months teaching yourself about something that is complex, and if done wrong liable to have serious consequences for the company.

    After some thought, I think the best solution would be to hire someone with the proper qualifications and some relevant experience.

    If you do have the time get, on some of the Red Hat courses.

    Learn to love the Linux command line. Just in general.
    It's glorious and incredibly powerful.

    For Fedora specifically, learn to use nmcli and ip, as these will be important for networking. Fedora's built in firewall is also a good thing to learn, but iptables can be important too.

    Learn about /proc, /sys, and /dev and how they can help you in a pinch. The ssh suite of tools would also be good (ssh, scp, sftp). Bash is pretty easy to learn, and will help you a lot. Also vi/vim, no doubt you'll need it at some point.
    For more specific details, it really depends what you're doing.

    SELinux might also be good to learn, but it tends to be complicated, especially when you're starting out, and you probably won't have too many problems on Fedora. But it's probably helpful to know you can disable it temporarily with 'setenforce 0'. (Wish I had known that starting out.)

    Start with the basics, and you'll find yourself learning more as you go. Courses are good, but I've always found getting your hands dirty (preferably in a safe environment) to be the best tool to learn any Linux distribution (or Linux in general).

    I suspect he doesn't mean "They dumped an non-configured Fedora 30 on me in my office and it's up to me to set it up" ( I hope not) but rather he wants to learn networking to get ahead of possible future problems but the basic system works at his office.
