    Hi Friends,

    Can all of you share you expereience about how tosecure a cpanel server from different things, with ut compromising on the performance of the server..

    Problem i have faced is

    1. Installing MailScanner on the server is delaying the delivery of the mail by a couple of hrs..

    2. To set the server to NO relay.

    3. am not sure how to secure my Apache and Proftpd

    Here is the easy but not the best way but it will work

    here are some in your scripts folder




    ./easyapache (phpsuexec recommended)

    there is a APF how to on WHT

    chrootkit how to

    set server to email you whenever there is a root login (howto available as well)

    disable direct root login

    keep kernals up2date (you can use redhat's up2date)

    and monitor logs and do some routine maintenance work.

    Security updates like kernels.

    keep kernals up2date (you can use redhat's up2date)
    just remember EOL for 8.0 and below, and 9.0 is i april meaning up2date wont work any more.


    i have seen some problems with that and chmods not allowing some scripts to work.

    Secure your compilers aswell.
