comment Equivalent to denyhosts, but for HTTP requests?
...wouldn't that tie up your server's resources just as much as an attackers...

comment How can I get access to password hashing in postgresql? Tried installing postgresql-contrib in ubuntu, still can't access hashing functions
Yeah, they seem to have updated the system to make extensions easier to manage, happily, and now after installing postgresql-contrib in postgres 9.1 and up you can just: create extension pgcrypto or from the command line echo "create extension pgcrypto" | psql -d dataBaseName to enable extensions, as well.

comment Free service for checking for DNS errors on your domain?
Hmmm, Zonecheck stops on first error, which isn't helpful (at least, in the web interface).

Any suggestions for what should I look into to set up deny.hosts rotation?

comment Denyhosts: Should I ever clear the denied IP hosts file?
Hmmm, right, I guess the ideal would be to turn on a rotation so that it cleans itself periodically. I'm not using centralized reporting or email notification within denyhosts per se, though I do receive logs of ips that get denied via logwatch emails.

comment Proper linux permissions for images that are uploaded to allow deletion and re-uploading
Ok, it seems to even view, you need X, so evidently that is the symbolic permission to add. What should I look into for apache to prevent execution within a directory?

comment Proper linux permissions for images that are uploaded to allow deletion and re-uploading
Ok, so apache being able to write everything in these image directories would be set via .htaccess or apache config somewhere, but what kind of directive should I be looking for to prevent interpretation as executable by apache for those folders? I'm also just trying (for my own understanding) to translate the permissions 600 for files and 700 for subdirectories into symbolic permissions. I believe that would be chmod u+rw,go-rwx for files, and chmod u+rwZ,go-rwx for directories (with the Z standing for I am not sure what, X? or s? Not sure of the symbolic rep. of direct. scan.
