We're just purchasing a dedicated windows 2003 server (in fact I think it's a VPS)
How do we actually go about installing software on to it? Simply searching for "installing PHP5 on windows server" just produces material about installing it as if one had access to the computer with a keyboard and mouse.
Am I being thick? I've had experience managing a linux server before but that had everything pre-configured and we accessed it via Web Hosting Manager.
I don't get the actual concept of connecting to a remote PC and...downloading files?
If there's any good books available please point me in the right direction.
