setup this server and run a network application?

By "socket application" do you mean a client or a server?

If it's a client is it web-based, cli or gui? Actually it doesn't matter, running a client that uses sockets is no different to running a client that doesn't use sockets.

I'm assuming you mean a socket server, in which case you probably want to run it on the command line and shove it into the background. This is basic shell stuff and not really to do with PHP. I suggest you find a beginners guide to the OS you're using and do some research on how to run a daemon.
