I am a techie who'd like to learn more about server administration specifically for hosting websites.

I recently got myself a VPS from Linode and have set up my personal blog and my dad's company website on it. However, being a complete newb, I am experiencing performance problems.

I'd like a general rundown on what happens at my server when a user visits my website. I'd like to learn what apache is and how it differs from other offerings. I'd like to know what files on my server are important settings. I'd like to know how to serve websites using django + nginx, and in general, the process by which I can educate myself to use any framework.

I am not looking for anyone to complete a specific programming task. In fact, this work may require no programming at all. We might open up my server and check out what's causing the performance issues and whatnot, but my main purpose is to find a teacher who will teach me the basics.
