      Use a nice web interface (Virtualmin) to help manage their linux server
      and
      Use aegirto help with the creation, updating and overall managing of drupal websites.

      How to get started with BurstNETvps
      How to setup linux on BurstNET
      How to access your BurstNETaccount
      https://www.burst.net/
    • Burst.net
      I don’t know if BurstNETis anygood.
      I do know its cheap
      It got 'alright' reviews in several webhosting forums
      Biggest complaint was that it took forever to create an account after it was ordered… (mine took 3 hours.. Woopty-do)
    • Burst.net – Oddity
      Weird!
    • Burst.net – Account info
    • BurstNET – VPS Control Panel
      Pretty basic
      No overusage notification features like Linode offers.
      If you installed the wrong OS to start out
      or just want a fresh start after messing around
      Go to: OS Reload
      Change or reinstall operating systems
    • AutoPutty
      Downloads/Installs:
      Download and Install autoputty
      http://www.techmixer.com/autoputty-advanced-putty-connection-manager/
      Download and install portable putty
      http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/putty_portable
      Point autoputty at putty
      Point autoputty at VPS
      Name it whatever you want
      Hostname is the ip from the Burstnet email
      Username is ‘root’ (no quotes)
      Password from the Burstnet email
      Connect via SSH!!
    • SSH on Burstnet VPS
      Reset root password
      Command: passwd
      Enter new password
      Don’t screw it up or you could lock yourself out
      Update linux for security reasons
      apt-get update
      apt-get upgrade
    • SSH – Start following Aegir Install

      Enter mysql root password
      Select postfix install type
      apt-get install sudogit-core unzip nano
      I added nano to this line. It is a good text editor for linux shell newbies

      FREEEEEE
      How to install virtualmin
      With it, you can create servers spaces similar to the way WHM can with cpanel
