I am pretty new to the whole Virtual Private Server scene and do not have a clue when it comes to setting up servers. I've gone ahead and opted for the free week trail of the Dreamhost PS system and would like to try and get a Minecraft (www.minecraft.net) server running on it to see how things would work/run.
Is there any one that could point me to a tutorial on how I might achieve this, or something that might be able to talk me through the process of getting the server program running on my host?
Would require someone that is willing to take the time to explain things to a total newbie when it comes to running a server
Any help would be most appreciated.
I have MSN, Yahoo Messenger, and AOL for ease of communication.
