how do you host a server on a webserver?

Recommended Posts

You just need need SSH and root access. You might need MySQL for certain plugins, and Cron can be set up for automatic backups.

Also, what are the specs of the system? Just because it can host websites doesn't mean it can host a Tekkit server. You need a good CPU and a lot of RAM. You can make a huge server with that kind of bandwidth.

Who is the provider, then, I might be able to find out what they normally use for a distro. Unless you know which one it is. when you log on via ssh, does it display a banner with information on it?
