Setup VPS Server & Advise Content for Maintenance Using Vid & Text Tuts - repost

I'm looking for a VPS Server but the MANAGED PLAN is over my Budget as I only wish to host a Non-Profit/Donation website. I hosted the Site though I ran out of DiskSpace & wish to re-start the site w/out the hiccups. The Shared Host is n the same Co. as the VPS Linux Server for ease.


A) Set-up VPS Linux Server (ie. Initial Server Setup Admin) - Installing ALL Modules required, & those popular modules that may be needed for future use. The Host will advise on & give you needed assistance, A Sys Admin who does the Managed VPS for the Host of whom I've been a client for 5yrs will check to make sure everything is in order, as with this setup sometimes minor details or modules may be overlooked accidently, so a check over cant hurt to make sure all is running & put together as required.

B) Move existing FTP files, mySQL DB, phpBB3 Script (or if possible if there is a Porting script from phpBB -> vBulletin or IPBoard (or similar) to keep up with the demand as I have seen the data on a number of other Forums and hey are quicker in loading times, DB queries & other important areas such as security - THAT IS IF POSSIBLE. THOUGH I'm happy with phpBB3 as it has a number of Modules to keep a great contender.

C) Wordpress simple install is needed (no extras, just basic 5 minute install). Any Modules available with phpBB (no more than 5) Though if phpBB is ported to VBulletin (hopeful, & I'm sure its possible with VB & IPBoard) by running a script adding the necessary mySQL DB's & transferring the old phpBB DB's to new named DB's (same goes for IPBoard) then deleting the remainder of the phpBB mySQL DB's. If this is the case these are a number of Modules for VBulletin & IPBoard (depending on which is selected) numbering up to 5-10+ (though most will not be needed as many are blogging modules & eStore catalogues. These will need to be installed - ONLY IF WE CHOOSE TO GO THIS WAY, THOUGH I WILL LIKELY SELECT A SPECIALIST IN PHP/mySQL Forum Installation for this Module Installation as it is difficult to get the set-up correct. I myself have over 13yrs+ in PHP/mySQL/Perl Installation, Modification and Coding and do not feel comfortable working with IPBoard/VBulletin modules & installing, as I have zero knowledge, however I have over 10yrs experience in all aspects of phpBB.


D) I will need a collection of Video Tutorials, Learning Guides, eBooks etc so I can teach myself over time rather than having to hire ppl (& waste valuable downtime) when the VPS has issues as we have no room for downtime being a non-profit organization.- If you are knowledgeable of any such info or VPS Set-Up/Maintenance literature at Amazon etc, I would be happy to be pointed to them, though google should be a help if you're unclear EVENTUALLY we hope to get a System Admin Volunteer as we have a Sponsor & Volunteers (Part/Full-Time/Student) who help out with a variety of our projects - MAINLY Web Development/Web Design/Web Coding/Illustration for our 'United Open Development Project Initiative' a.k.a "Intl. Open Devs Projects Group"

I MUST be pointed out how to learn Managing VPS Linux Servers so they can be maintained to run scripts w/ ebooks & tuts explaining the ins-&-outs of those who manage VPS' for a living -though obviously the most advanced techniques will require course/book study & hired VPS experts in the meantime in case things get 2 advanced. I'd like to hire the Winner occasionaly for issues with VPS maintenance & upgrades

VPS EXPERIENCE - ADMIN & MAINTENANCE IS A MUST- YOU'LL BE SEMI-TEACHING a Shared Host User. Including above part of this PROJECT is 4 you 2 Show Step-by-Step the outcome of a prob & solution should arise & not be understood as the "Student" will be taking NOTES (any info given appreciated eg. which tuts, books, vid tuts etc that will help) The VPS Host offers to Install Security Options & Standard Config for 50Euro, I expect same PLUS Best Modern Security & web services
