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 VPS. 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 **L**inux operating system, with the **E**Nginx web server (which replaces the Apache component of a LAMP stack). The site data is stored in a **M**ySQL database (using MariaDB), and dynamic content is processed by **P**HP.
