More than a month, I have been toying around with the vps. Now, I just want to record my activities with it. I think it is very easy. I use vpsfarm @ www.vpsfarm.com. I think they don't have any machines left at the moment.
I choose debian as it is the root of ubuntu. Five minutes after installation, they send me the password via email.
First thing to do, change the password. it must be unique, between 8-12 characters, combination of upper case, lower case and numbers.
the command is:
Enter new UNIX password:
Retype new UNIX password:
passwd: password updated successfully
You must enter the same password twice, to avoid mistyping the password as the character you typed is not shown in the screen.
It's all done! Next is how we install LAMP into it.
