Disclaimer - please read this!
I have to include this section as I know that by posting this guide that some of you are going to email us and ask us to "really quick just log in to my server and fix things for me". And we're going to have to say "no".
So right up front:
1) This guide is being provided to help you learn how to setup and manage your own VPS/server.
2) If you get stuck in this guide, please feel free to comment and we can try to help, but ultimately we are not going to log into your server and fix anything - if you are afraid you are going to get stuck, or that the content is too advanced, then this guide is not for you - please use managed hosting for your Jamroom.
3) DO NOT EVER post your root password or other user login information as comments here on this guide! Your server WILL be hacked if you do so!
4) You really should not just paste in things that are shown to you in some online guide without understanding what the commands mean. I will do my best to explain what the commands are and what they do, but we also cannot be responsible if by doing so it messes up your server. Seriously - this guide has been created to help you out, but things can (and sometimes do) go wrong.
With that said, I'm not trying to scare anyone, I just need to make sure it is clear that we are not the "IT guys you can call when something doesn't work" - we only support the Jamroom software - this guide is being provided to help out those who want to know how to do this on their own.
