I have VPS and a better than basic knowledge of linux OS, I can use putty and not intimidated by command line. I am trying to have 3rd party software company install thier script and requirements, however I need to verify some info before hiring them. I have root access to the box.

Can someone lead me into how to verify the following information. My current host isnt being extremely helpful. And  I need to learn this stuff someday.
TIA

Linux Server (Fedora Core, CentOS, Ubuntu, Slackware or SuSE).
Apache Web Server
Support for AcceptPathInfo
Support for MultiViews (or mod_rewrite which is slower)
MySQL 5.x
PHP 5.x (mod_php/CGI)
Support for GD2 Library
Support for MySQL
Support for Curl
Support for uploadprogress PHP extension (only if you want to display a progress bar on uploads)

If you upload and run phpinfo(), it will give you Most of that info.

<?php
phpinfo();
?>

Open in new window

That's exactly what I showed you above.  You upload it to the web site and open it in your regular browser ( http://www.yoursite.com/phpinfo.php ) and it tells you everything that PHP knows about your server.
