this email tell you? If you are rusty with linux, and have never installed MYSQL or PHP before, is there
any guidance on steps to take, tutorials to access for how to do these things? Any guidance on teaching
you the order to install things, etc? I presume with a KVM, you can select your own versions for MYSQL, PHP, etc, and pretty much decide yourself how you want your system to be set up. Not a lot different than a model railroad enthusiast who enjoys the creative challenge of building something new.
I know someone will ask why do you need VPS and while I do not need such a package to run my forum, the idea of tinkering and learning new skills appeals to me. I want to know what kind of
resources are available to insure a reasonable hope of success.
