Basic Question on Dedicated Servers

Please forgive the basic nature of this question.

We run a hobby-oriented web site with Knownhost using Xenforo. It has grown, and we now have a dedicated server.
I have never known much, if anything, about the technical side of things. I set up Xenforo and hope for the best.
Recently, it became obvious, when I didn't know what a symlink is and how it affects backups, that I need to learn about the server....and FAST.

Are there sites on the net that are good for laypersons like me, explain things in SIMPLE terms, that I could read to begin to get a handle on all this?
