    Hi all,
    I am new to Plesk and I am a bit confused.

    Which is the best way to deal with security issues?

    I have closed services that I don't use (via plesk), I have configured the firewall module of plesk but still I don't know how to deal with bugged program already installed.

    How works the upgrading in plesk? I must wait for a new release or i have to patch manually?

    And if I patch manually after Plesk works or there will be problem?

    In particular if I want to upgrade Apache and Php I can do it via yum (I have cent os) or there are any problems I should consider before?

    I am using Plesk 8.0.1 and CentOS 4.3

    Thanks in advance,
