    Hi,

    I recently purchased a dedicated server which runs linux (not sure on the distro) which I have running a number of websites.

    In the past I have only had to use cPanel and WHM to manage these, but recently there has been a requirement for an IRC server and Shoutcast server.

    I am familiarish with linux and was wondering the best *secure* way to set this up.

    Can I create a user for each service with next to no permissions and run them under this user?

    I got this advice from another forum:

    I understand some of it but was wondering if someone could please explain a little further?

    Many thanks.

    Can you post the output of
    Code:
    ls -l /etc
    and
    Code:
    uname -a
    ? That way we should be able to figure out which distribution you're using.
