    Hi all,

    I used to host my auto blogs in shared hosting and it is very easy to install my auto blogs, since I can use Fantisco to install it in seconds.
    But my webhosting provider has forced me to move to a VPS hosting(my hosting caused loading problem to their shared hosting as he said). I'm quite new with this VPS technique and although the hosting provider helped me to move all my blogs to my new VPS, now I want to install other new auto blogs but can't find where or how to install it. I searched for the Fantisco function but didn't find it.
    I'm really confused with installing WP blogs in my VPS server, please help me if you already used VPS to host your blogs and know how to do it.
    Thank you so much for your help.

    I think you're going to have to learn how to install WP manually or outsource.
    codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress
    or
    howtoinstallwordpress.com/
    You're going to have to learn how eventually, don't you think?

    Do you have a control panel installed on the VPS at all?
    If you do, just create a database and then grab WP from wordpress.com, unzip on your PC and then upload to your VPS.

    I do all that without a control panel now using Ubuntu - takes a few minutes to set up apache and virtual hosts and away you go!

    I did cheat on MySQL and installed PHPMyAdmin though.

    Shout me on yahoo messenger if you need help.

    "
    The hosting company provided me a Webmin and [FONT=&quot]VDSManager, where "[/FONT][FONT=&quot]You can create, MySQL databases, Webserver, virtual hosts and much more using your Webmin interface or upload/configure your server using SSH/SCP."

    But I find it very difficult to create a database in this Cpanel.
