This article details exact steps to set up basic database replication with SQL Server 2014.

It starts with this:

  1. Right-click the Replication folder, and then click Configure Distribution.

On right clicking my Replication folder (I do believe I installed replication), I only get the following options:

Launch Replication Monitor
Generate Scripts....
Update Replication Passwords...

I can't find any other place in SQL Server Mgmt Studio to get to this section. What am I missing?

You are likely using the Express Edition. Note that Express Edition can only act as a Subscriber. Try using Standard Edition or above to Configure Distribution and Publishing.
