Guide to General Server Security

The National Institute of Standards and Technologies published a draft guide intended to help people install, configure, and maintain secure servers.

The guide is somewhat generic so you won't find step-by-step information about any particular platform. But it is very useful as a high-level view of the steps that need to be taken.

You can download a copy of the 54-page guide in PDF format at the NIST Web site.
