    Help for VPS sysadmin noob

    Hi. I just purchased a VPS server and need to install a webserver and a VPN server to start with. Server is running Linux Ubuntu.

    Do you have any recommendation on software needed and how to configure the server to have a stable environment(Secure, robust, reliable)?

    Specifically, how do I go about setting up IPTABLES, OpenVPN, Apache etc?

    Any tutorials or related threads would be greatly appreciated.

    You could try ispconfig3 which is an open-source alternative to cpanel & other web server control panels.
