Help Getting Started

Hi, you ordered an "unmanaged" server. That means that it is up to you to do all the work, as opposed to a managed server. Since you are the administrator it is expected that you know how to setup the server for your purposes. This forum can give you help, but no one will write to you a tutorial. Please be prepared to invest a lot of time. Running a server is not something easy and you should be very careful, since your server is under constant attack from the internet and if you are not careful, it will get hacked - Murphey's law.

I think you should find some instructions that will suite your purpose.

I have a dedicated server with and have installed Debian 7 stable (Wheezy). But, what do I do next?
I need it to be working as a webserver.
I could not find a tutorial in the support or faqs pages.
Can someone please tell me where I can find a 'getting started' page
