Linux Webserver which distro and how to secure
I'm a complete novice to linux especially command line. i have used server for several years but generally at the graphic end like cpanel and webmin/virutalmin
I am now about to endeavor setting up my 1st linux box as a live webserver the isp will do basic install of the distro and provide SSH access.
But the advice i'm looking for is what i do beyond that the last server we had was compromised so i'm particularity wary of security to stop any future compromises. most websites are wordpress or joomla so i need to guard against SQL Injection.
I don't know if there is a good book / website i could use as a guide to the setup. Last server was Debian so may go with that or maybe centos.
Any advice be greatly appreciated
