I don't know much . . . but you bought a VPS? As in the whole unit with multiple VPSs or a single VPS on someone else's server?

Oh, ok. I was just curious.

Anyway is this (http://www.usefuljaja.com/vps) any help?

I am sorry I can't do more, but servers aren't exactly my specialty.

Good Luck,
jim

Where did you buy the VPS from, it's possible that somebody else here has used that same company so may be able to help.

That said, you should've received an email from your provider, usually they provide an IP, and a root password, so you can ssh into the server as root
