I set up Apache on my Ubuntu 7.04 server from Deb apt-get and have configured it work, but I am worried that my lack of knowledge my leave gaps in security, what are some tips to help keep people out of it, especially if they are hacking the server? I have webmin disabled and I do not use cPanel, its all configured via Shell...

I have no clue what you installed and how but by default apache does not come with webmin or cPanel.... and by default apache is quite secure...

BUT as you have webmin and cPaenl (somehow) you do not have a default apache.

There are security guides available from www.cisecurity.org for both Debian Linux and Apache.
