    hi,

    i'm trying to "do all the right things" on my new server.
    so i'm obligingly following the configserver security & firewall directions, and the security advisor directions.
    one of the tips is to enable mod ruid2 to get the jailcells going, and then - another tip is to get apache safe with mod_security.
    from documentation on this site, i see that this is like locking cain and abel in the same room with a pile of rocks and a bottle of rum, and there's no mediation in sight.

    be that as it may - i really just want to keep my little server safe, minimize attacks on websites and on mail functionality, with the least amount of infighting inside the server.

    what's the best practice course of action?
    what are the influencers when choosing my weapons between mod_security / mod ruid2?

    thanks!
