comment Books/Guides for Securing a Server
@xenoterracide: Fair enough, although I wasn't really looking for help with the AMP bits. You'll notice that the question title doesn't mention LAMP specifically - I asked about securing a server in general, which seemed pretty on-topic to me. I did mention the whole stack in the question, but I added it more as context than anything else. My real issue is that I'm a newb at Linux, and I thought the Linux SE would have the right expertise to help. BTW, I did ask this on SF previously, but I thought it would get more attention here, and I figured security info would be good to have here.

comment Books/Guides for Securing a Server
I saw the O'Reilly book earlier (via the same search you mentioned, actually), but was a bit put off by the publication date. Is a five year old book really still relevant today? I'll check out the rest of your links as well (well, except that I asked SF this question a while ago already, so there's no point in duplicating that effort). Thanks very much.

Thanks, I'll check out your site. I didn't realize that Apache, or especially SSH given what the S stands for, were insecure out of the box. Hopefully someone else can come along with a guide for them, if you have none. Thanks again!

comment Learning about iptables: Is this Slicehost example any good?
Awesome. So would the Slicehost example be good enough for production on a mundane LAMP site? The more advanced tutorials left me feeling like I was missing out on something important, though my reading of the Slicehost example looked fine to my layman eyes.
