    first time server - need help

    This will be the first time I will be moving my site to a dedicated server. So I have no idea how to configure it and secure it.

    I will be running a Panitum 4 with 1 GB ram and OS would be CentOS.

    Can someone please show me what to do after I buy the server. I need really nice firewall software so hacker cannot get into my site.

    Thanks for your help,
    CP

    In linux the built in firewall software is called IP tables. You can batten down the hatches with that.

    I would suggest hiring a server management company to properly secure and maintain your server if you do not have the knowledge on how to do this. Better safe than sorry.
