Hi - first of all sorry for the slow reply - I've been too busy writing JS and not busy enough checking the forums XD
thanks for the replies, first of all:
@lammert: you mentioned security. The server's setup with SSH access over the internet, but on a non standard port (to avoid port scanners) - of course I'm not going to mention what this port is, highly confidential info ;)
But more to the point do you think that there's anything I might be overlooking in terms of obvious security holes (you're right - posting the link to two forums increased traffic so now there aren't just bots and ::1 cron jobs in the access.log!)? The only security measures I've really taken are non-standard port and a very secure password, and of course I've made it so that only the server's default user can login (username undisclosed of course) - although sudo is installed on the server and you can get root access this way with just the default user's password (is this a blatant security risk d'you think?). Please tell me if there's anything I might be overlooking.
Oh yeah, server grade components come at a price alright...sheesh! I'll stick with my £120 bargain basement server any day tyvm ;)
@wheel: surely if I converted wordpress to static HTML I wouldn't be able to update content anymore (unless I painstakingly updated each file)? Not exactly sure what you mean. I've certainly seen sites where it's obvious they've used blogging software, yet it's static HTML. By the way, a slashdotting of my site would be awesome :D
thanks very much
