Basic Server Security Guide (BSSG)
on Tue, 10/19/2010 - 23:48
Hi, this is a basic, simple security guide for your server. You should consult a full security related site/expert/article/book about security.
Make your passwords some long and unpredictable. For ex, 123456 is not a good pass for a production environment.
Try to choose your linux root pass different from mysql pass.
Do not disable open_basedir in your server. if you do:
Try to check all scripts that you install against sql injection, or xss. if your php code is vulnerable, people may steal your database or delete.
do not give your passwords to anyone that you dont know.
update your server, ehcp regularly: apt-get update ; apt-get upgrade for ehcp, download it and overwrite except config.php, re-login
check your server for viruses or backdoors regularly,
watch your logs regularly,
that was a basic quide.
this is somewhat advanced, but very important:
