I encrypt parts of my VPS. I ended up creating an encrypted drive &
file system that I have to log in and unlock before I can mount it. I
have multiple directories on it. Then various other places in the VPS
file system have sym-links pointing to those directories, i.e.:
/etc/mail, /home, /etc/dns, etc. That way my files are encrypted on the
I did this to make it harder for someone to access them (via what ever
methods, court order, strong arm, etc.) without a clone of the running
