Setting up a web server with security?

Post by railer » 2008/03/18 12:43:52

Can anyone direct me to instructions on how to setup a server properly for web hosting? LAMP server packages would be great, with security features too -- a firewall (iptables), caching proxy (squid), and whatever else is suggested for server sites on the Internet. Can't seem to find that info in these forums. I have a control panel (DSM/ServerCP) but some info on ispconfig (if you recommend it) would be good, too.

All help is appreciated,

LAMP is installed when server is selected during install.
Read the Wiki.
Read the DOCs.

This is what i don't like about this forum.

There are people who know a lot about CentOs and linux/Unix and there there is some who want to know more. then you get a person that says read.

This forum could be much better is there was a better support base and proved help as opposed to just saying read.

What do other think?
