I'm still trying to setup my server at Rackshack for hosting. I'm using H-sphere for the cpanel. I put ssl on the cpanel.
Can someone tell me good setup for backups (I have 2 HDs), spam, virus, firewall,etc.
How do you protect your server and its contents.
Any help would be great from someone that has a hosting server properly protected.
If you need an admin I suggest you go to www.r-fx.net, Ryan, who I know personally is a great guy and very knowledgable in his field. Some of his tools have actually made their way into Linux distributions.
If you want to learn how to administrate your own server I suggest the following books:
Linux Administration: A Beginner's Guide, Second Edition by Steve Shah
Real World Linux Security by Bob Toxen (the second edition is coming out soon, supposedly this month)
You may want to check out the Hacking Exposed series as well as the Maximum Security series. Both are good.
Learning a scripting language such as Perl would probably be useful although not essential.
I really need to get things up a running properly asap. I am surprised this isn't more straight forward. I have a great control panel/admin for customers. I just everthing is working, I just want to do things right.
I thought I had a winner in Ryan, but he won't give me his
phone number! Support that starts out with no phone help?
Ikiwi site couldn't contact to support. Bobcares answered back, India? Any other ideas?
