introducing my self with a question:-)


Hello guys,

I am new in the forum and although I am managed some vps and hosting accounts I would say that I am far from an expert in managing a server.

What are the best 1-3 tips with regrds to server security? E.g. Firewall, user access restriction, deny from?

Best

Welcome to LQ!

My only tip is to have a look at the wealth of information in this sticky thread in the LQ security forum.

Well, server security isn't done in 5 minutes and if you don't know the risks and how to avoid them, you'll probably end up with some unwanted visitors on your server :-)

Contrary to popular myth that managing a Linux Server is difficult, learning to manage your own installation of Linux is very easy. Not only that the operating system is free of cost. It comes with a free owners manual called world wide web.

Internet is best place to learn about Linux. It has tutorials and courseware for every one from Geekest of Geeks and a total newbie. This proves that gone are the days when Linux Server were only the domain of geeks....

Peep into Google you will come to know more than here...
