  1. There's no one right way! Due to the variety and complexity of modern web servers, security issues can't be resolved with simple, one-size-fits-all solutions. You, or someone you trust, must learn enough about your web server infrastructure to make valid security decisions.
  2. There's no substitute for experience! To secure your web site, you must gain real experience , or get experienced help from others.
  3. It's not as hard as it looks: The following checklist below may seem intimidating, but you don't have to deal with all of it at once. As you become more familiar with GNU/Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP, HTTP, and Joomla, you'll add refinements to your combination of security tactics.
