Thread: Linux Vps

    Linux Vps


    sorry for my question but i have a very low knowledge of the linux world.

    Is there any way to manage remotely a Linux VPS as it is possible in windows with Remote Desktop Connection? I'd like to manage the VPS with the same interface of a desktop computer, without having to learn linux commands?

    And if possible, would you recommend it for a newbie as I am?

    There is a solution, but it will take you 256MB RAM and some help from your provider.

    Your provide must install vncserver and kde/gnome, then change xstartup for vncserver to start kde when vncserver is started, then start vncserver, and allow you to connect to the server via VNC.

    Can I humbly suggest that you do not start hosting a linux VPS until you know what you are doing. Grab a VMware image of CentOS and learn on your local machine first. Very few providers are going to babysit someone learning the basics of an OS.

    You would do well to get a VPS with a control panel, through a managed provider. That way they will help you learn the ropes and you need never login to the terminal until you are comfortable.

    The control panel will provide you with a GUI.
