I have a new web server running Linux and setup to use WebMin to administer this servers. I have included virtualmin in this installation. I basically am looking for a reliable and knowledgeable freelancer to provide ongoing and support and to carry out small tasks from time-to-time (to save me trawling through manuals to elarn another new system). I would like to know that the person has excellent Linux knowledge and experience with administrating the server via WebMin. One of the main first tasks will be to advise on the commands to carry out to secure the server i.e. tying down unused ports, removing unnecessary users, setting up with just root + then 1 user for each website hosted, setting up mail accounts (+ webmail), making phpmyadmin accessible to all domains (but with only one install location).
I need somebody who takes a proactive position and will advise what other tasks/recommendations they have to keep system up-to-date and secure. I would also like to use this person for any future support and upgrades.
This is not a lump sum project but just to make initial contact and to determine experience/rates/suitability/etc.
