Anyone really good at setting up email and Apache, and good with security issues? I'm currently setting up a new dedicated server at a web hosting place. Well, my friend Rod is actually doing the setup. He's a genius, and is really good at researching these sorts of thigns, but doesn't have much experience at setting up LAMP systems, being fairly new at it, and asked me if I could find anyone to help out.
If interested, please check out more details that Rod wrote out, below. And if still interested, please contact me off list.
I'm proceeding slowly but surely with configuring
the new server. The goal as I see it is to configure
the server with a LAMP stack and email services that
are reasonably hardened against intrusion attacks
and password eavesdropping. I'm doing many of these
tasks for the first time.
To speed things up it might be helpful to have some
assistance or review on the part of someone who has
Email. Currently I have Postfix installed and
partially configured. I chose Postfix with the hope
that it would be simpler to configure than sendmail
and because its author is a security specialist.
However, a friend gave up running his own Postfix server
and warns me that it can be complex to administer.
Here are some outstanding issues:
- Should exim or sendmail be reconsidered instead of Postfix?
- Adding TLS/SSL support.
- Configuring SMTP.
- Configuring Spamassassin.
- Configuring SquirrelMail to support web access.
Apache configuration. A review of httpd.conf and related
configuration files could be useful. This server will be
supporting multiple virtual hosts as well as PHP and SSL.
I am also trying to reduce the need for web site developers
to use root access when working on a web site.
It might also be useful to review how iptables, vsftpd and
ssh are configured.
I have access to plenty of resources to research and solve
problems as they come up. However, it all takes time.
If you know of someone who has deep working knowledge
of LAMP + Email + Security please let me know.
