    If you are a complete newbie in regards to running a server and technical issues I suggest you go for a fully managed server or a reseller account. Managing a server is not a simple task and there is a lot of know-how involved.

    I recommend reading through the guides listed on the ev1server's forums. The how-to forum has a wealth of knowledge.

    www.tldp.org has tons of how-tos. Servers are a big responsabilty, make sure you know how to keep software up to date before you take that sort of responsabilty on A hacked server is nightmare.

    it's nice to learn

    8 months ago the max I knew was basic linux commands
    i just hosted my sites for 2 months, and broke the server hard 3 times (total offline time around 2 days)

    now i got some good experience, although i'm far from being an expert... maybe in 2 or 3 more years

    I don't think you truly know any system until you hose it a couple times.

    Cheapest way to learn is to get an old computer and install the operating system you wil use.. then all you will loose is the time it take to restore the OS..

    Well... the fastest way I find is to use the same OS used on your server installed on your desktop then use it for your daily computing... use your desktop to test on things at least before running your first test on your server... IMO
