Well, your original question was a little like "There's some money
missing from my dresser drawer; how do I stop that from happening?" We
told you to make sure no robbers get into your house. You then asked
us how to do that.

Well, given we know nothing about your house, there is nothing we can
tell you that wouldn't be trivial: go check the doors to see if they
are locked, check for any broken glass around the windows, and make
sure you don't give the key to anyone untrustworthy.

Translating that into apache-speak: check your logs for anything
unusual, check all the dynamic content (php/cgi/etc) for possible
vulnerabilities, and make sure that your OS, apache, and scripts are
all up-to-date on security patches.

If you want more specific help, you'll need to ask a non-trivial question.
