how to use your new Linux VPS server

how to use your new Linux VPS server:

Since it is a Linux server, you will have to use a ssh client such as putty
download it for the official website >>putty

first type the IP of the VPS server, and click open

you will be promoted to type your VPS user name and password

note: when you start typing your password, the letters will not appear, it an security act from putty to decrease hacking possibility.

now you should be logged in, I'm using Ubuntu 18.04, the message is deferent between system to system

now you need to execute this codes:

this to update apt

sudo apt update

then this to install the GUI, because You are on a Linux server. There's no GUI or an output whatsoever. You'll have to install that yourself.

sudo apt install xfce4 xfce4-goodies

then this to install the server side VNC server

sudo apt install tightvncserver

then this to install VNC server configuration


you will get something like this
to set the VNC server password..
it should be less then 8 character

You will require a password to access your desktops. Password: Verify:

now you will get output like this
just answer "n"

Would you like to enter a view-only password (y/n)? n xauth: file /home/sammy/.Xauthority does not exist New 'X' desktop is your_hostname:1 Creating default startup script /home/sammy/.vnc/xstartup Starting applications specified in /home/sammy/.vnc/xstartup Log file is /home/sammy/.vnc/your_hostname:1.log

now the server side is ready to be connected from the client side (your PC)

so download tightvnc
note: other VNC software will not work, because the server-side client use tightvncserver specified protocol.. so Microsoft remote desktop will not work.

then type your server IP and 5901 as a port like this

you will be promoted to type the VNC server password that you set it in previous steps (that less then  character)
