    Hi


    I bought a VPS because i need to run run a script for days and now i cant setup it... Vps its a virtual machine with parallels or vmware right? So.. I will be able to login and install programs with gui interface right? Because i want to open the browser on VPS and run the PHP script, i dont want to put my computer turned on for days...

    Its a simple thing? If its simple i give 3 facebook vouchers total value $150 and one adwords if want...If prefer money, well... the prices needs to be very low =/

    Yes.

    As far as I know, most linux VPS's dont have gui installed, so you'll need to connect via ssh and install a window manager (the exact instructions will vary depending on distribution) and set up remote desktop. If it's a windows vps, it's gonna be much easier.

    What script exactly are you trying to run?

    The best option to you will either run the php script with the VPS with the gui interface or just make a remote desktop access on the vps, install xammp on that "pc" and run the script there...

    VPS = virtual private server


    If it is a Windows server then yes, but most servers are Unix flavored...


    You can run your PHP script on any server....although if it's Windows, you will probably have to install a few extra thingies...
