Running a Virtual Server with Confidence

URL: http://thingelstad.com/,

Do you have a box on Linode for your blog? Maybe a VPS with Slicehost? If you’ve provisioned a bare VPS from install you know there is a lot to keep in mind. Is it secure? How are you dealing with hack attacks? Is the software up-to-date? You are monitoring your logs right?

In this session I’ll walk through a “best practices” taking a bare Unix box to running a handful of web sites. I’ll use Ubuntu 10.04 LTS as the example case with a VPS on Linode. The material will be generally applicable to anyone using a Linux/Unix based host and needing to make sure that it is sound for service.
