The CPU mining won't even pay for its electricity usage. Are you sure you want to do this?

$5 electricity for every 25 cents profit. You decide.

That 25 cents will take a week to generate as well. That's only about 12 dollars a year. Obviously the load and service load disruption to the server and anyone using it and your violating the terms of usage by the vps provider or data centre that looks after it and so on are all well worth the 25 cents you'll be earning in profit. Either way, you're not going to get many people keen to help you set this up...

I'm sure there are plenty of more useful uses you can get for that server instead of cpu mining which is a waste.

You'll be best mining for litecoin with a CPU as it's designed for CPU mining.  You can then trade your LTC for bitcoins, hoard them or use them.  Follow these instructions - http://www.litecoinpool.org/help

It's a waste of electricity even if it doesn't cost you anything.

my dedicated server @ hetzner gets about 10mhash/s cpu mining

just use the bitcoind

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).
