Project Description


We use one remote VPS server (Westhost) and one dedicated local server for our website. Both are set up an running already. However we need an expert to tune our server to be as highly optimised as possible to serve all pages as quickly and securely as possible.

# Speed:

* HTTP compression

* MYSQL query cache

* Dynamic Page Caching

* Workload management or virtualization

* Development server

* Anything else that you know which will make the site run as quickly as possible


The project will also involve making the server as secure as possible

This will include:

* Setting up SSL admin side and customer account creation side

* XSS protection

* Hacking Protection

* Prevent file and image hotlinking from external site except from our own remote server

* Whatever security measures you know that should/can be impleemented


* System Backups

* MySQL Backups

* disaster recovery

* Easier interface to setup FTP

* anything else you recommend

This is a full corporate and commercial site and needs to be as fast and secure and stable as is possible.

Please give some indication of what measures you would implement for us in addition to the ones laid out in this post. Furthermore - if you believe that any of the measures laid out in this project are not a good idea to implement - please make that clear..

Future Server administration tasks/projects will be extended to the winning bidder. Long-term partnership seeked.
