So while getting a VPS, a managed VPS does make better sense. However, since I am setting something up on a small scale, I think I can afford to be a little "adventurous". So I have decided t go for an unmanaged VPS, and start from scratch, setup apache, configure domains/subdomains, setup email and take care of the security, and then going on to setup a CMS(The part I am familiar with). So what do you suggest as a good guide to get started. The web is full of tutorials and advice, but I was to sift through the clutter. So help me out, and suggest the best resources for a newbie like me.
