I had a discourse forum which got ddos’d to hell last month (it’s basically a community about news, and what got me ddos’d was the posting of news about ecuadorean protests a month ago. Real eyeopener too). Anyway, this is basically a “hobby” of mine and I don’t really have the money to pay for expert help or expensive servers. It’s just a rather cheap standard vps dedicated exclusively to discourse.
So, what are some good tips you could give me to harden the security of my dirscourse?
