Rookie needs help

Hello all,

I’m new and have a few questions. First my background: hmmm, well none.

I have a small shop hosted with a company that uses cpanel. I would like to setup Virtualmin on a VPS I’m getting that uses Debian 6.

What I want to know is how I can set it up so I can copy my hosted site over to it but I want to leave the site where it’s at for now. I just want to use the server for testing different shopping cart programs and to make and test changes to my shop on the other server?

After I learn some I will move my site to my own server and maybe host a site for a friend.

Any help would be appreciated.
