Hi Richard Since I have been on DreamHost for more than a decade, I would love to have something like this set up. I’m not too proficient with Terminal or Linux, but can follow instructions. I would love to know if there is a crib sheet or step by step or tutorial that I could follow to get an instance running in my space?
Thanks for any information that you can point me to.
