Amazon EC2 + EBS security server


Hello,

I am interested in signing up to the Amazon EC2 service with EBS. I have never used a unmanaged vps before, but I know how to use the command line etc.

There are some basic packs on there to use, with basic LAMP stacks. But I would like to ask about how do I:

Upgrade a lamp stack? - someone mentioned yum, but what is this? how easy is it to use? is it enough?

secure the lamp stack? - assuming I have no idea of linux security, can you give me a list or something of things I need to consider so I can begin the search (or just cover the steps would be awesome!)

My website just uses php and mysql, so thats all i'll need. If you have any other tips on this, please include them! anything helpful.


thanks linux guys in advance,
David
