Good afternoon,

I trying to install Magento on a vps server. I can't find any instructions how configure the webserver.

I need to know what applications i need to install, such as apache, phpmyadmin, mysql etc. I allso wanna know if "Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS 64-bit" is compatible with Magento! If it's not i can choose another installation. My host provider offers different kind of installations

Can anyone help me please? Thank you!

For a [really]basic Magento installation follow this guide. You will need a LAMP environment for a this, but it can be improved by using Memcache, Redis, MariaDB, etc. Start by configuring the LAMP environment and once you are familiar with it continue with more advanced software.
