mod security for apache
i wanted to secure apache by installing modsecurity. I read harry sufehmi's tutorial on how to set up a debian server on linode. If I install modsecurity by typing apt-get install libapache-mod-security, am I going to create problems mixing packages? I wasn't able to include it and recompile apache from source.
I'm running debian 3.1 with 2.4.29
I know there were problems mixing stable and unstable packages but is this still the case?
Thanks for your help
libapache-mod-security is already in the Debian stable repository:
The following command would do fine:
apt-get install libapache-mod-security
You might want to install bastille-linux too. It is available on debian via apt-get and helps you secure your OS. It will present security info and ask a series of questions (mostly yes/no) to help make the OS more secure. Takes about 10 minutes to complete if you read the info rather than just going with the default answers.
