Recently I had to get a VPS (virtual private server) for remote development.
Below are my steps:
Once I signed-up for RamNode, I chose their $3.50 a month, 512mb plan. Dirt cheap for web development.
I went with Ubuntu, seems like CentOS was the default.
SSH in, (I’m using Secure Shell for Chrome)
- Create a user.
since you don’t want to use root as your main account.
(replace username, with what you want your username to be)
useradd -m username (create home directory adduser username sudo passwd username
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install git
