    Hello. I had to use VPS on my site, then I bought one, but I have no idea on how to install and configure. So, a guy that I know (not in person) installed and configured everything for me, he is really good at it, its his job.
    Everything is running fine, but I´m kinda affraid.. what if, after he sees how much money im making, he copies everything on my site, create another one and delete mine?

    So the question is:

    What do I need to change, like password, port, etc, to make it completely secure?

    Here is what he installed:
    Nginx, php, php-fpm, mysql (I´m using wordpress), ssh, ftp.

    Set the SSH service to a different port ( it's standard on port 22, you should change to 8394 or something ) , block the root user to use SSH. Install failban. Allow SSH only from one/two IP's.

    This should help.
