Tips for Securing a LAMP Server.

I want to learn about hardening and securing Apache server. Can anybody suggest me very detailed web resource. I also want to learn history of different vulnerabilities existed in Apache, possible attack against them and how to mitigate them. I required this for both Windows and Linux platforms. Anything else which you think I should know from security perspective is welcomed. (I am a student. I don't have industry experience. This question is asked before but I think the answers are for working professionals.)

For some basic information and a rogh overview regarding the basics of securing Apache HTTPD for windows you might find this article on Hardening Enterprise Apache Installations Against Attacks as useful as I did.

Helpful document to start with but my question is very broad in nature. I am expecting some more detail. – user58859 Jan 24 '11 at 16:22
