I have been searching for a while now. But i can't find a start-up and advanced sought-of checklist to understand the most important things to consider while going for dedicated hosting server for a website/application.
I am working with a college and we have installed an IBM server there.
- OS: CentOS 6.4
- Application Type: PHP/MYSQL
- Terminal access software: PuTTY with SSH (I have also created Public|Private tokens)
Other software which I have installed are:
- Virtualmin (Helped me to install LAMP stack)
Basically I have followed all steps which I have found in this tutorial at youtube. I found it decent to understand as it gave me a start: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpJfFZoWeho
But this was not core about security.
I just want to know, like all other newbies that what would be the best checklist that I can go through and learn to assure that things are secure on broader aspects.
It would be a great help for everyone who just want to start.
