Setting up VNC viewer on VPS running CENTOS6 help needed [Noob]


Hello everyone. I recently purchased a cheap VPS that can run a variety of versions of Linux, but due to the VPS only having 512mb ram I chose centOS.

Basically I am very new to Linux (Briefly used Ubuntu and mint before) and new to messing around with VPS's


I am wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a SUPER NOOB friendly tutorial on how to set this up or just tell me, here, as I have spent quite a number of hours so far going through various tutorials on how to do this yet failing every single time. The most common problem I am running into is with VNC viewer, and getting the server to run on my VPS. (It comes up with things like unknown command etc)


Thanks for the help!

Thanks for the question and a possible solution.
