Recently I purchased a VPS from intovps.com, And first time I configured a fully unmanaged VPS through ssh comands. My website is working into it, properly. Now I just want to know how to secure it?
I started my process of configuring VPS in this way:-
Installed LAMP, phpmyadmin, restored the backup(wordpress & mysql), installed vsftpd for ftp access, added a user into FTP(user can navigate into any directory over the entire VPS, but change anything)
Now after everything, I just want to know the security steps for my VPS. I have heard from my friends that after configuring a VPS, it also needs to be configure for security. In VPS, I have only one user added for ssh access, which is default,and I just added one ftp user.
Now I want that the ftp added user should just navigate to the
/html directory, where my website is installed, and has all writes to change everything
And any suggestions or tricks or steps for making server more secure?
