The problem is that securoty in IT sense is very very undefined...
Because you may spend thousands on dedicated hardware firewalls and still get hacked or just disable ssh logins and never have any problems for a long long time...
I think the best thing to ask now is :
1) What OS are you running?
2) How much do you want to spend to secure your server?
3) What you want to install exactly...
Upgrade services? ( php, mysql etc etc )
mod_evasive for Apache?
mod_limitipconn for Apache?
Or in layman terms "what you want to block "
I just wanted basic firewall lashing on an configuring the server just so i can run my forums off it an site. Nothing serious, was looking to spend about $40 on it... <edited>. I dont have a clue how to install anything on it... emails asll, a descent email client for webmail..
1paket SA has reinstalled suse 9.1, he said he only had that image to use!
can anyone do the following:
upgrade suse to 10.*
upgrade mysql (to 5 if possible) or as close as!
also php my admin has a limit (2mb) i think... anyway of making this bigger so i can upload all my forums sql files quicker?... or is there another way around this?
oh and also some sort of firewall aswell.
then clean it all up, any programs we dont need. etc
i run a (ipb) forum, so any other protection would also be usefull!
get intouch with me!
will pay good price for the right person!
