The learning curve?  That entirely depends on how comfortble you are with
configuring applications on Unix/Linux servers in general.  If you've never
set up a web server, then it will take you some time to get things nailed
down correctly.  If you merely have not installed Apache before, as opposed
to another web server, then it should not be difficult.

All I can say is start from the bottom, and work your way up.  Learn to
configure mysql, next install and set up Apache, then get PHP installed.
Last, read up on the rquirements for phplist, install the required PHP
modules, and then finally phplist itself.

The first time I set up phplist, I had a working setup in a couple of
hours, which I then took a few days to test thoroughly.  However, I did
have several years of of apache/mysql/php setup and usage experience before

All I can suggest is to jump in and start learning.  All of these open
source packages have great online docs, tutorials, and support communities
to get you going.

since this hosted server holds our website and database, my main concern is
that i do not affect those existing configurations- a web developer created
our site/shopping cart and cms and loaded it all on this VPS -  i just don't
want to someone to come to me and say "hey our website is down" or something
to that affect
