Server Admin Wanted for Linux/Apache/MySQL box


Mine is a classic story:

My 'server guy' set up my web server a couple of years ago with promises as to his unfailing reliability and 24/7 availability.

However, now that my server is getting hammered by devious individuals bent on using my server as their own personal spam-production machine, he is too busy to give me the time of day.

Almost every day, my monitoring center emails me to let me know that my server is drowning under a sudden torent of activity only to email me again five minutes later to say that everything is ok again.

Recently, I've been getting some rather nasty emails from them complaining that phishing messages are originating from my server only for them to forgive me and forget everything a couple of days later, when I can only assume, the traffic has died down again. This cycle repeats with disturbing frequency and I've run out of lies to tell them regarding the diligence and urgency with which my 'server guy' is dealing with the issue.

I need a new 'server guy'. Please help.

Is there any instant messenger for you to discuss more about this?
Seems you don't have enough posts to send a PM too.

Hi Kristin,

Are you using Exim for email on the server? If so, I'd be happy to reconfigure that for you at no charge. If you are happy with it, we can discuss terms for ongoing service. You can email me at c.ciufo@invisiontech.net

Thank You!

Thank you all for your quick responses! I'm actually a little overwhelmed by the quantity and quality of the replies.

I really do need a new server guy and I will be contacting each one of you in turn.

Ultimately, I really should be learning more about my server so that I can do some of this myself but I'm not sure that I really have time for that.

Thanks again.

Kristin

You can email me at insidefremont@hotmail.com or add to messenger. I just helped another WHT user (last night) and he was more than impressed. Got lots of client's you can talk to and look for a long term or short term relationship with. I'm sure I can show / teach you everything I do and explain it , so you don't have to be like "I have no idea why he did this or how he did it". I do admit though it takes nearly 24 hours to do this since I prepare small flash videos explaining how to do things and run scans,etc - letting you learn at the same time. Anyhow if interested just email (and a phone number OR messenger id would do a deal of good)

Regards

Good luck Kristin.

My recommendations:

Rack911 is very good.
Techbrein is very good.

Firmbit has a good reputation but I have never used them.

If you want to learn how to secure your server, I suggest first get an admin to get you caught up and ask them what they did. There are some tutorials on this board that may help you get started but what you are describing requires an actual qualified admin to clean up.
