I have been doing web development for over 12 years, so I'm very familiar with shared hosting environments and using CPanel/PHP/SSH/FTP/MySQL, etc.

However, I decided to start my own virtual dedicated server through Linode.com to host the websites of all of my clients and move them over - exciting times!

What I need is the following, a security/linux administrator who will:

1. Review my server environment (apache, mysql, iptables, mod_secure, mod_evasive, folder permissions, chroot, etc, anything else you can think of), make sure that I've configured everything properly to be the most secure and optimized. How do I chroot my system (create "jails")?

2. Help me maintain my client's websites. What process should I follow to add a new domain to apache? Do you have any scripts that make new website/user creation easier? How do I enable specific services to a specific user (SSH or FTP)? How do I lock down user folders so that they can't traverse folders above their own?...
