    What are some basic things I can do to protect my server. I have a very high volume of traffic and members. I want to be as proactive as possible. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! Thx

    Dont allow root logins from ssh
    get a firewall setup, if your on linux with iptables, apf works pretty good
    make sure all your software is updated
    setup mod_security

    Go on, have a guess
    Additionally (though I disagree wth the root login issue, especially if use use key authentication) I would suggest either doing a search on the forums first as this has been gone into details on many occasions, or look in the Ads & Offers forum, find some people who provide server security services, look at what they offer to secure, search Google to find out how to do it yourself :)
