I am working on a project that involves setting up a server for a
customer where they will need to access a database on an on-going basis
for various kinds of record-keeping, etc. I have come to the conclusion
that a LAMP server will be the best solution for them (I won't bore you
with all the reasons why, but let's assume that is the way I will go).
This will be the first time I will undertake a project quite like this,
so I have a few specific questions where I would like some opinions,
especially the professionals out there who may have done jobs similar to
this for paying customers.
Since the questions deal with different topics, I will send them out
separately so as not to muddy the waters by mixing things together.
--> QUESTION #3:
This server will be for the use of one particular organization and needs
to be secured against outside parties from 'snooping' or worse. What
resources (web sites, etc.) would you recommend for setting-up and
securing an Apache server in this situation? Also, with all the
different packages or "projects" sponsored by Apache, which ones should
I make sure are included (and any configuration advice) when I install
