Start on a low population server.
Here is a map of the island:

Head to the coastal airstrip. You will probably be able to pick up an M4, some ammo, and maybe a backpack.
There is an abandoned military camp south of there that will also have stuff, probably ammo but not weapons.
After that head east to the big city (Cherno) and look for food and stuff.
You should keep an axe because you can open cans with those (you can also open them with a can opener).
More than one canteen is a good idea.
On the map it also shows you were you can find pump wells. You can drink water there until you are fully hydrated and feel up your canteens and water bottles.
Don't trust anyone. Its best to run or shoot on sight. Some people will be friendly because their friend is sneaking up on you, or they want to get within melee range and axe you. Trust no one. Except maybe friends you play the game with.
You can get a headlamp or gun light (you need a quad rail for your m4 to use it on the M4) which allows you to have a gun and flashlight out at the same time.
