Very nice tutorial and very easy to understand but I would also include a firewall like (CFS).

Thanks!

@Bluz, Regarding your WHMCS issue I have experiencing this in the past and it for me to fix this I had to go back to the old version of WHMCS before the update.


Hope that helps good luck!

RE: HOW TO: Secure and Optimize your VPS

Hi,

Just an additional idea on how to secure Apache web server.
a. Disable TRACE and TRACK
- This will save you a headache on some of Cross site tracing vulnerability. just simply add the following at the end of your Apache main config and restart the services. By default trace is enabled on all apache web server upon installation.

httpd.conf

TraceEnable off

HTH.

regards,
Andrew

Anyone know where I can find something similar to this topic that isn't outdated?

Thanks,
Greg
