Order Events by Event Date & Show more than 5 events in archive

How do I get the events to show up by the event date? This seems like it should be a no-brainer. Displaying them any other way would not be logical, since the calendar functions are the primary reason for using an events plugin over any other CPT. Currently they are being ordered by the post date.

Also, I can’t get more than 5 events to show up in any view. (I can’t use the calendar template because I have two very distinct categories.)
