I’m new to Virtualmin and I am in the process of learning and configuring. I have a question about virtual servers and the use of a reseller account with regards to hacking safety.
I previously used CPanel/WHM and created a reseller account. All my websites were created under the reseller account. However, one the Joomla sites got hacked, some php scripts were uploaded (ex: timthumb.php) but all the public_html directories of the other sites were affected as well. The .htaccess files were all replaced with a nefarious one.
Although I have been a java programmer for many years, I’m not an expert in account/file/directory permissions on Unix-based systems.
My logical structure seems to be to mirror the one I have set up with CPanel (reseller with multiple websites) but I am worried that if one site gets hacked they will all be vulnerable. Does Virtualmin manage accounts and permissions differently…or would I be subjected to the same vulnerabilites?
Any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance
