Project Description

The fee is a monthly fee

We need a Linux system administrator to administer a server on an ongoing basis. Server is a web server, running CentOS 6, Parallels Plesk panel 10.4, Wordpress, Java mobile services, and PHP+MySQL.

Once you have automated the processes, there should be very little effort/time required - for occasional tasks, and this is not expected to be a daily work/effort. You will be expected to know how to perform disaster recovery / server recovery.

Need to automate backups to second server

Need to facilitate rapid restore, in event of hacking or outage

Need to keep patches and service packs up to date

Need to keep firewall blacklist up to date

Need to optimize server configurations, Apache configurations, PHP configurations, MySQL, Java and other services for best performance

Need to respond to potential and in-process alerts/threats, and will make all reasonable efforts to prevent or minimize damage and/or data loss.

Need to receive and process all chron daemons, server alert messages, updates/alerts from hosting company, and react when necessary.

Over the next few months, we would increase the project scope to include additional servers, and can negotiate higher fee at that time.
