    Securing my server

    I have purchased an unmanaged server 3 weeks ago and have moved my site (adult tube) to the new server. Everything was going great until today when I checked my apache status and saw over 900 connections, but had only 90 people on the site.

    Needless to say, someone was streaming from my site to theirs, eating a Tb of bandwidth in less than 4 hours. I am a small startup site with 9000 page views a day. Because of the bandwidth usage by the thief I shut the server down until I can get help securing my server.

    As far as money goes, I'll be straight up. I'm disabled and on SS Disability. I cannot pay until the 11th when my check is deposited. The site in its 1st month has already paid for the server and I feel will really grow.

    But right now I need HELP!!

    Thanks to everyone who replied. As I was in a real bad spot last night,
    the 1st to pm me was UNIXy and Joe was a real lifesaver! He saved me many Tb's
    of bandwidth, He was The most patient person I have found in the server world.
    Joe to the time to explain to me everything he was doing, why he was doing it, and what the end result would be. He installed a firewall with cPanel interface and explained how to use it. Fantastic person that I am proud to call a friend!
