    Hi,

    I just bought a VPS for my website since I ran a viral facebook app as suggested by hosting company because when I bought a web hosting they seldom suspended my account because as they can't handle the traffic. So they suggested to buy a VPS in order to avoid suspension.

    Now my problem, I really don't know how to used it. As I read on forums, they used VPS to run a software 24/7 and I want to have that also but I don't know how?

    Could anyone know how?

    What's your os on your vps server? If ti's windows server you can use remote desktop to manage it. If it's other os you may need to use control panel.

    You've got a home work to do. There's no one complete source of information on managing unmanaged VPS. So you will need to search a web, look on youtube for tutorials. Piece by piece you will get there. It helps if you have any previous encounters with managing WHMC, but not much. Road to greatness lies ahead of you. VPS and dedicated is the way to go, if you are going to grow big with your sites, so starting to learn bits now is as good as any other time.

    Did you sorted your problem? To run softwares on your server you will need Windows package, not Linux.
