Hi kidx,

Welcome and we will try help you. As i can see you want to learn about server security. I will say you how one pentester think, then you will know what to learn.

1. We learn all about our target : system os, system softwer, system logs, system settings files, system version etc ..
2. Then we try to get all informations with pentester tools nmap, nessus, pentbox, lynis, openvas and all OWASP security tools colection
3. When we get infromations, we try to find or we make exploits/payloads to run against system
4. If we find some issue, we try to find solutions, and then fix them etc ..

And it's done :). But all this you can't learn in few days. Read a lot, a lot great tutorials and books around for it. First all about your system, them learn how to attack.

you can start to ask/post your queries here. if you want to be a pentester, like Zerof mentioned, you need to read a lot, not only book but digging around the internet and looking for your needs, only you know what you are looking for...

Therefore, if you need help for assessment of your server you have to provide some details, then we can help you out:
 - what OS/distro installed on your server
 - kernel version
 - running applications (sshd, httpd, smtp, snmp, ftp, mysql, etc)...

PS> the people who attacks your server are not hackers, maybe just script kiddies...if they were hacker your server won't be alive at this time...so, my suggestion is, don't blame on hackesr, try to understand who are the hackers first instead, be curious.

Happy Hacking!
