Well to secure it Id say Attack it.
But first setup your Security.
- iptables (Firewall)
- snort (NIDS)
- tripwire (HIDS)
Portscan your server using nmap.
Check if for Banners with Open Ports.
Check for Known Exploits on Banner Answers using milw0rm, metasploit and Secwatch
Vuldb Test using Nessus and/or CoreImpact
Test Security Passwords using Hydra/Brutus/Medusa
Check of PHP-Coding Mistakes (Assuming its a webserver)
After all Fuzz your Server..
Hire a Peneration tester..
Hope that helps.
