comment Can and how do you run a command on a remote server via a bash script?
Your thinking is too complicated. Copy and paste are things you do in a GUI. When scripting, avoid copying as much as you can.

comment What's the most widely used pronunciation of the Unix /etc directory?
It does, but pronunciation is not a grammatical property.

comment Crontab every minute on a specific time
While such a script can be simple, you will heavily rely on it always being started and stopped correctly. This requires some extra work, e.g. some logging will be nice. cron has been around since the early 1970s and is relied on by the OS, so it is already known to be reliable and it has standard resolutions for such things - better rely on it instead.

I have added one paragraph to make it clear that the answer suggesting /srv isn't wrong in any way.

This is no attempt to answer the question. A sample size of 1 is very small.

comment Does number of hardlinks to a directory correspond to the number of subdirectories in it?
I don't understand - unless you use the -i flag to compare the results, ls won't find any duplicates. That being said, I've never encountered multiple hardlinks to directories (disregarding . and ..) and I'm highly surprised that some tool should use them by design. I wouldn't be surprised if standard tools such as find, ls -R and tar assume this property to hold.

comment ssh - execute script in background if not already running?
More generally: there is no foolproof method to check if a program is already running. Search this site with keywords such as daemontools.
