Project Description

Hi freelancers,

Due to other commitments, I need someone to setup my unmanaged VPS. Things are already installed:
- CentOS 6.3
- Nginx + PHP + Fast CGI
- Some minor security tweaks

Things need to be installed and configured:
- MySQL 5.6 (latest version)
- APC
- Varnish
- Kloso control panel
- Wordpress 3.5 (latest version)
- Harden SSH
- Harden CentOS
- Harden webserver (Nginx in this case)
- Harden PHP
- Harden MySQL
The VPS needs to host more than 1 WP site so you need to install WP in its own folder. I have a domain name which you need to point it to the newly-installed WP site.

All the installations must be bug-free with detailed logs. NO sneaky software/scripts are to be installed. IF I DISCOVER ANY, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE PAYMENTS AND WILL BE REPORTED.

All the security tweaks must be well-documented and explained. You cant just do it because you think it secure. I dont expect a 100% secured system as it is possible but you must be able to explain in writing how it can cope with common types of attacks (and if you dont know them you should NOT bid for this project).

Root access will be given. In the process of setting the server up, you CANT use simple temp password such as 12345 or etc..... Although everything is temporary and I will change them later, all passwords needs to be securely generated.

At the end of this setup, you must be able to demonstrate a sample Wordpress site up and running on the VPS (the one you installed. As previously mentioned, I will provide a domain name to point to the site).

NO INFORMATION TO BE DISCLOSED TO A THIRD-PARTY WITHOUT MY AUTHORISATION. This is a MUST.

Required skills:
- Linux Sys Admin
- PHP
- MySQL
- Nginx
- Wordpress
- Punctuality

Required time frame: The VPS needs to be ready in 7 days. I dont expect you to RUSH things.

Happy Bidding !
