Many websites run on shared hosting. With a hosting provider you order a hosting package with standard PHP / MySQL preinstalled. You can then easily install your own Joomla site. But what if you want to run other software than the default software that is installed on the server, such as newer PHP versions etc. A possible solution is the use of a Virtual Private Server (VPS).
Peter tells you how he came to use his own VPS and his experiences with it. And what you have to do to set up and manage a VPS. Hopefully there will be time for a small live demonstration with setting up VPS to install a website.
