So, Im a beginner at server side things, not doing/hosting anything serious, just learning… I recently setup a digital ocean droplet myself with Centos, Lamp, firewalld, fail2ban, postfix…
I also set up a droplet with serverpilot, my learning aside, of course me doing it will be more beneficial for me, Is it more secure to have the Centos server with fail2ban etc, or server pilot… It seems that all they do is a basic firewall and regular updates, which i can do myself…
I also noticed they have root login enabled, which Ive read is a no no…???
Any suggestions…? Thanks
