Thanks @MaxMackie! I guess what I mean is that I'm aware of ps -ef, but how do I tell if specific services are running, ie: mysql's service isn't just "mysql" (though I think grepping for it would turn up), same with apache.

Any tutorials you would recommend for downloading/building each component of the Apache/MySql/PHP stack? Speaking of which, how do you download things from the terminal w/o a GUI/web browser? I pretty much just downloaded things on my client computer and dropped them in a shared directory and ran from there.

Agh, thanks Max! You knew what I meant (I am familiar with LAMP, though have only ever worked mostly on Windows's XAMPP). I am familiar with PHP, and have programmed a few smaller scale web applications with it. I have used VIM a bit, but cringe at it the same way I cringe at using the terminal, and probably for the same reason (unfamiliarity).

@Thorbjørn Ravn Andersen I've heard about X11 but only the name. That would be excellent!! Is that standard practice for people to use when interfacing with headless servers? I'd like to become slightly better at terminal-interface, but if people just install X11 (same as X-Windows?), I'd like to learn to do that too!

Neat-o, I'll check it out. What sets Nginx apart from other distros?
