This is my first question on SF.
I am new to Linux and any of its flavors for example CentOS. I don't even know about its file system. Actually I am programmer not an System Admin.
My client recently purchased a VPS account on dailyrazor.com. They provided me with root access through SSH and suggest I use PuTTY but the problem with me is I don't know a single command of Linux. I asked Razor to pre-install tomcat version 6.0 during VPS setup. They installed it also but on usr/local folder. Now I want this tomcat installed in my home folder.
Can someone tell me how to use WinSCP, a very good software through which I can see the whole directory structure, and can use Linux like I am using Windows. I want to install tomcat in my home folder so I can operate it from file manager in control panel but I don't know how to install / unintsall any software on this Linux OS.
So my question is, is there any GUI tool / application from which I can connect to the server and operate it like I am operating Windows, at least to accomplish my above stated goal?
For example like in WinSCP, I can install/un install application on my server?
Or please advise how I can accomplish my above stated goal.
