I want to know that i have purchased a new dedicated server and i dont know which security softwares should i install in my server to avoid abuse or hackers cant access my site
I mean i want to make my server as secures as much possible
I know about
APF and BFD
Will u plz post the names of all security softwares which i must install to secure the server
We restrict root login to keys only and setup the wheel group to only let specific users access root. This combined with a good firewall rule set and keeping the system updated will go a long way in keeping the system secure.
Mod security is very powerful if properly deployed but the default rules do not apply to many situations.
Lastly, be sure to remove any software you don't need from the server.
