Must install apps for security!
 
Hello,

For a vBulletin site, I wanted to know what all softwares/programs must be installed on a server to ensure maximum security.

For example: Suhosin, mod_security etc, are these really required? Anything else which is highly recommended?

Thanks

I'd use suhosin and fail2ban.

1. Installed suhosin and fail2ban.

2. Disabled login for root, and made "username" the only user who can switch to root.

3. Configured SSH server to login with Keys Authentication

anything else you suggest? Are the above steps a good practise?

Thank you
