Setup VPS un managed hosting using CentOS 6
I am newbie to Linux
I've rented an un managed VPS
I've goggled and found most review go towards sing CentOS for the VPS.
The VPS is un managed and install CentOS 6 with just one click then generate a root password.
Then use PUTTY or SSH Secure Shell to connect to the VPS and then it is fully empty and nothing installed at it at all.
So please advise how to go into this long way down ahead?
How to figure it out to secure the VPS and add my websites?
