Just purchased a Linux VPS - What did I just get myself into?
I just purchased a linux based VPS and I think I might have made a mistake. LOL. I really have no idea how this thing works. I did however download Putty SSH client and I've logged into the command console, but I just don't know how to set this thing up. The system I'm running on is CentOS.
For instance how do I:
- Install PHP
- Install MySQL
- Install FTP Client
- Setup Domain
- Install Joomla
- Setup Email
Any type of help or direction pointing would greatly be appreciated. I'm sure once I get use to the command console, things will only get better.

Php,mysql should be there by default.Else just do a "yum install <software-name>" - I think joomla is similar to drupal installation ,so installation shouldn't take more than few minutes.
I don't know to setup domain though. May be "howtoforge" or linuxhomenetworking are a good sites to begin within. HTH
