comment Is it possible to run two webservers on the same port on the same server? E.g., Apache and Lighttpd
@macek: Personally we use nginx as the proxy and main webserver so I don't have one on hand. The Apache docs are really good though, you're looking to implement a reverse proxy: httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_proxy.html

comment Development HTTP server with fastcgi support
@tylerl: Most webservers can be run from the command line. nginx is another nice webserver, config file is simple, can do FCGI, infact you have to use FCGI for dynamic content, but it won't manage starting the FCGI servers for you (designed that way for security reasons). If you want to get rid of the configuration file entirely, good luck. I'm not sure such a thing exists; specifying every option on the command line would get... hairy.

@Aaron don't even need two different physical interfaces. Subinterfaces are fine, as long as you have two IP's to run them on.

comment Sending emails on behalf of my clients. The options
When reading RFC's, 'SHOULD' means it's a very strong recommendation. The only reason a client wouldn't in most cases is because it's old and hasn't been updated since that RFC was written. See RFC 2119 for the standard definitions: ietf.org/rfc/rfc2119.txt

comment Php.ini disable “Scan this dir for additional .ini files”?
Much better solution. I'd rather use the system packages than recompile and manage it myself.

comment Why do we still have such small email attachment filesize restrictions?
100Mb link? Unless you're a corporation, noone has a 100Mb link here in Australia.

comment Mysql - Access denied for user 'root'@'x.x.x.x'
@Bragboy you probably need to set a password for the account too rather than just leave the account passwordless. By default, each grant entry has a separate password too. Look up the GRANT command in the mysql docs, I forget the exact clause now (I usually manage users with phpmyadmin)

comment Mysql - Access denied for user 'root'@'x.x.x.x'
This is definitely not unfortunate. Personally, I don't want the root user, or a couple other users able to be logged into remotely, but I might like to allow some other users with limited permissions to connect remotely.
