Looking for a push in the right direction, hoping someone can give me their .02
I am running CentOS with cPanel on a dedicated box that is in production with clients. I bought a script called Scriptcase. I have used Easy Apache to build Apache. I have 24 ip's to this box and probably 12 or so that are not in use. I posted this question on the forums over there but I dont think that it is really their department.
I need (Want?) to install it on my dedicated box so I can access it regardless of what computer I am on or where I am. I am wanting to install it to an IP instead of a domain name and a random port. It makes me nervous though because if the bad guys get in, its pretty much game over.
It requires permissions to be 777 and I run suphp for the clients and hosting. Scriptcase is just going to be for my use and I was figuring I would Deny all and then just allow my IP at home. My problem is that I dont think I could sleep well at night knowing I have a script installed with permissions like that.
Is there a safe way to go about running a script like this on a production box?
If there is a safe way, can someone give me a shove in the right direction on how I would configure Apache?
I have read up here Changes Contained within a VirtualHost Directive I am still confused on if there is a safe route and if there is, what method I should use.
Appreciate anyones thoughts on this!
