I have bought my vps and havnt the slightest clue on how to download things to it! i need to download a client for a game and i have no idea on how to do this. Please someone post a guide on how to set up a vps to download things to.
You should probably start by reading the VPS Tutorials. Then read through some of the posts on VPS Talk. You find answers to many common questions about VPS service in both of these places. If you are not familiar with LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL, PHP) SSH, and Command Line, you will also need to read up on these topics as you will need a good working knowledge of these to setup and manage your VPS. Exactly how you download, install, and operate your game client will vary slightly depending on what operating system you are using on your VPS and what other software you have installed on your VPS other than the OS.
You should have received a link to your VPS Control Panel when you signed up for service. The very first thing you need to do is go to your VPS Control Panel and then select and setup your operating system. Your VPS is little more than a blank slice of disc space until you complete that step. I would suggest using Centos for your operating system, but that is up to you.
If the terms we are using are unfamiliar to you, then you need to immediately do some studying as I suggested in my previous post. You must have a basic understanding of L.A.M.P., SSH, and Command line before you are going to be able to do anything with your VPS.
We will be very happy to assist you with your VPS as much as possible in this forum, but it appears that you are going to have to do a little reading and familiarize yourself with how an unmanaged VPS works as well as some of the common terms related to VPS service.
I am using CentOS 5 32bit. I am not even completely sure what the cPanel-on-Build is. I don't use cPanel. I have tried a few different things and find Centos easy to use for VPS operations, but that is just my opinion based on my experience. Other folks will give you different answers.
Which is a GUI based alternative to PuTTY that if you are familiar with FTP clients will soon become familiar to you, but is in effect SSH but without the need for command line with the option to use command line for extended use.
