View Full Version : [ubuntu] Encrypt Database and Installation

June 22nd, 2011, 01:18 AM
I am running TikiWiki (http://doc.tiki.org/Ubuntu+Install) on localhost on my netbook. I have Ubuntu 11.04 with all updates installed. It is an Acer Aspire One D255.

I would like to put some bullet proof encryption on anything that the wiki stores and/or does. I would like to encrypt this area as if I should ever have my netbook stolen I do not want the information accessed. I suppose I would need to encrypt the /var/www area, the mysql database areas, etc.

Is there a way to do this? If so what type of program (preferably open source/free) and is there a step-by-step guide for this?

If it requires encrypting the whole netbook I really don't care as I simply use it to access the Net and do my localhost stuff.
