I’m a complete newbie to Linux (however I’m no stranger to command line). I’ve just followed the tutorial with setting up my system for the first time. What things can I download onto the server? I wanted to get a little practice.

Try setting up a LEMP stack on it following this tutorial: How To Install Linux, Nginx, MySQL, PHP (LEMP) stack On CentOS 7

In this guide, we'll get a LEMP stack installed on an CentOS 7 server. A LEMP software stack is a group of open source software that is typically installed together to enable a server to host dynamic websites and web apps. This term is actually an acronym which represents the Linux operating system, with the ENginx web server (which replaces the Apache component of a LAMP stack). The site data is stored in a MySQL database (using MariaDB), and dynamic content is processed by PHP.
