I am currently a Computer Science graduate student (Ph. D. seeking) at the University of Maryland. I do a lot of programming (primarily web application development) for small businesses and nonprofits.

In school, I focus mostly on security, and I have also worked on counter-terrorism applications.

You can find me most days in PHP and/or C#, but increasingly in JavaScript with a focus on Rich Internet Application areas (knockout.js, durandal, breeze.js, etc).

comment Port forwarding to the router itself on Edgerouter
Thanks! I'm still wondering if there's a way to use the original port from inside the business though.

Have you tried using a tool like Apache Directory Studio to test those filters?

comment Port forwarding to the router itself on Edgerouter
@joeqwerty VPN is an option, though I'm sure that there has to be way to do this and I would like to find it just for the sake of knowing. I'm not concerned about a port scanner though - I have several other locations using other firewall software (pfSense, ISP-provided, and others) and have cut down from thousands of attacks per location per day to almost zero, simply by changing the port.

comment PHP-FPM TCP connections not terminating in time
I don't know for sure whether it will clear the problem up or not. (That's why this is a comment, not an answer.) It certainly can't hurt to try though.

comment PHP-FPM TCP connections not terminating in time
TCP Sockets are only more scalable if you actually use multiple worker machines and farm the connections out to them. If you are only using a single machine, then the extra overhead of encapsulating the data in TCP packets in FPM and deencapsulating it again in Nginx means that domain sockets are more efficient.

comment PHP-FPM TCP connections not terminating in time
Have you tried using Unix Domain Sockets instead of TCP to communicate from Nginx to PHP-FPM? I don't know why you are having this problem with TCP connections, but switching to not use TCP may be the easiest fix.

comment How to “un-ANSI-fy” logs?
@Guss what version of Bower are you using? It has supported that flag since 2012.

comment How to “un-ANSI-fy” logs?
If you know that you will be writing the output to a file, the easiest thing to do (at least for NPM) is to run with the --no-color flag. Many other commands also have similar flags.
