Google Cloud LAMP stack running Wordpress MU
Installed from GCE bitnami launcher
I have finally setup a webserver using a bitnami stack (Wordpress Multisite) that i intend to go live with.
I have been otherwise engaged doing other things for a few months and have now come back to this and am now rusty.
Exactly what security precautions do i now need to take on the default bitnami LAMP Wordpress MU installation?
I have no problem running security software on the CMS itself...I am concerned about security at the webserver level.
I find the entire bitnami installation a little confusing because its directory structure is completely different to what i am used to seeing. Hence, I am not sure whether i should be using bitnami scripts for all additional application installations or whether security apps are not the way to move forward?
Obviously, I do have a layer of firewall security from google cloud network administration, however, i am also interested in configuring the server directly.
Essentially, my aim is to have at least 3 main levels of security...
1. Google Cloud Network
3. Wordpress security plugins
I think the bitnami lamp stack for WPMU runs debian?
