I recently got a dedicated web server from server4you to host a couple of my sites. I have no idea about online servers and I couldn't find any tutorial on how to get started. I know that I have to use something like cpanel, plesk.. and I'm thinking to try and play with the free solutions like webmin or vhcs.

Any idea on how to start. I have my server ip, user, pass. Then what? How do I use any of these softwares. Do I need to upload them and how.
