Few days ago I wrote about how to start/restart Apache if it is inactive in Ubuntu. Today I am going to share a bash script for CentOS 7. It is mostly the same except for few changes.
Objective: To disable password based logins and login only using key based authentication. Will create a pem file which will be used to access the server. OS used is CentOS 7 64bit.
If you have a web server running on Nginx and have a directory which accepts uploading files either from user OR cms. It is always good to have a bit of protection from the server side to deny executing scripts like PHP in that directory.
Nginx is a web server like Apache. I will not go to which is better and why one should use it. Google is your friend to find that out. Here we will focus on how to install latest stable version of Nginx in CentOS 7. Login to your server.
