It's not so bad.  I added the following to my apache2 config to fix
some SSL issues:

SSLProtocol all -SSLv2

- Grant

Yes, it's very simple. PCI Level4 compliance will not actually scan the
application behing the apache, so it's all pretty much securing the OS and 

If you decide to go Level 3,2 or 1, you may then have to provide key URL's 
and the scan would test the forms, related links from page, logins, etc... 
I have not gone this far, as most setups are or with Level4 to connect 
to banking gateways and other secured networks/services.

Note that the levels are determined by the amount of transactions usually, 
and if the site grows to larger amounts then the banking gateways will ask 
for a higher level of compliance. I believe the 1st step is 20K/month? Can't

remember now, but if you think you may get to that point, I would honnestly 
get the compliance done earlier than late, it'll buy you time.
