I finally reached a point where it became more economical to lease my own Virtual Private Server than the several shared hosting plans for which I was signed up. When I signed up for my first VPS, I had a little experience with Linux, but not enough to confidently fully administer my own production server. So I started searching and researching. This page organizes what I have learned and offers a resource for other new Linux VPS administrators.

Host: John Companies (johncompanies.com)
VPS OS: Ubuntu
My Local OS: Windows XP

===Key Steps===
[[VpsStep1 | Getting Started]]
Security and the Firewall
Running Apache

===Google Custom Search Engine===
Around the same time I got my VPS, I discovered Google Co-op, a custom search engine portal, and created [[http://google.com/coop/cse?cx=011485844201494682042%3Aaym4yhntik8 | my own search engine]] for this topic. This seems useful for a topic like Linux, where there is a lot of conflicting information, much of which is noise that takes the form of outdated or incomplete information (e.g. mailing list archives, which seem to rank high in a lot of general searches.) I am still adding to the url list. And you can, too. Try it out below:
