    I am somebody who has a limited knowledge of server security, and I would glad for any information on ensuring that a server is secure.

    Thanks, Jamie

    Just search the forums and you'll find plenty of ideas. There are even some stickies covering most of what you'll need to know to understand the basics.

    This has been discussed many times on the forum. Infact there are few threads that sumarize all other threads on this topic. Do a search, I am sure you will find the required information. If you have any specific doubts, feel free to post here ;)

    That is a little too broad of a question for any single forum thread given that
    I could probably easily write a 10,000 page book on the subject and still not
    cover everything that should be covered.

    There are threads here that cover some of the elementary basics

    You should probably looking into books on "Linux Security", "Hacking", and "Apache"
    for more information on general server security.

    The more you know, the more you will be able to recognize what needs to be fixed.
