    cPanel/WHM - Any recomendations on addons for security?

    I have cPanel/WHM/Fantastico/Mod_security - all with standard setup, So for I have installed clamav. Im wondering if anyone can reccomend any other things I can put on the server to keep it more secure. I will be selling a few shared hosting packages on the server and just wondering what you are all using. I know nothing is truly secure but I just want users to have the most comfortable experience possible. Free or reasonably priced paid software. Once I have most of the work done I will consult with somebody who knows exactly what they are doing to do any final lockdown needed.

    I appreciate any suggestions.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    3 things right off the bat
    1) Install CSF and configure it
    2) Install SuPHP and configure it
    3) Configure Apache with suExec

    I won't go into detail as to how to do those 3 things, as it would take pages and be simply repeating what is already out there. Just google any of those topics and ask questions

    EDIT: Install a good ruleset for mod_security

    he has the right idea, but unless they know a lot about what to configure and how to configure it, they will be going round and round in circles on something they can't "translate" into simple terms. i can help with CSF, but the rest i haven't done and don't know much about.

    larwilliams: Thanks for the suggestions. I was going to install them but I noticed on the link to PSM, they install all those and a few more so instead of struggling and leaving potential holes I will have them do it for me.

    Thanks for your replies.
