comment Standard or best way to keep alive process started by init.d
@ewwhite It depends. Debian has systemd since wheezy, but it wasn't the default init. It should be the default from jessie. And since our user accepted the answer, I presume he was already using systemd for another reason (or had permission to install it).

comment how to implement access control using connetcing hostname and port(squid)
Perhaps you should explain in more detail exactly how these proxies work. It sounds like they are not "normal" proxies.

comment Hostname missing on Debian 7 Linode after logging in
You're only the second person to ask today. My guess is Linode has done something to your servers.

comment how to implement access control using connetcing hostname and port(squid)
How would that be used for authentication? The hostname of the proxy is never sent to it.

Um, switch it to SPICE video? I can't imagine why it would ever be set to cirrus.

comment How do I stop my URL from re-directing to another website?
It's not terribly hard to look up the domain name, see it's already owned by Recyclebank LLC, and continue shopping for another name. As for changing your server configuration, that shouldn't be more than 30 seconds of work, unless you've done something crazy like embed the domain name all in the web site you're building.

Don't try to use other people's domain names. It won't really work.

comment Commodity hardware related, i'm searching for a ILO, BMC, ALOM and in general IPMI alternate solution
Don't buy a server without out-of-band management. Just don't. You don't want to get into this situation to begin with. IPMI is just a baseline; things like ILO, DRAC, etc., are generally built on top of it.

comment nginx gzip_static: why are the non-compressed files required?
The gunzip directive is relatively new. And it had some bugs prior to the 1.6 stable release. Anyway, if you have the extra CPU to spend on it, go ahead, but it will almost always be faster to have the resource already (un)compressed and available to sendfile() immediately.
