comment Can RHEL6 servers be “copied”?
@dK3 I think you misunderstand. You wouldn't be modifying the production servers (unless you want to). You'd be installing a small tool on one of the production servers to let your VM solution "explore" it and create an image of it. You install the VM solution on your development box and point it at the "converted" image of your prod server. So, if you don't already have a development environment, this solution isn't a "change" ...

comment Difference between `httpd -k start` and `service httpd start`?
Good ideas (+1) ... still trying to determine what the meaningful difference is between the environments the process is run in. Any idea what ENV differences might be relevant?

comment Difference between `httpd -k start` and `service httpd start`?
Good info (+1). I've been poking around the daemon function it executes; but haven't been able to identify what the important difference is. When I manually execute the "final" command it runs (/bin/bash -c 'ulimit -S -c 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 ; /usr/sbin/httpd'), it works properly. Is there something general in the file that could be running it with different permissions or restrictions? ... phpinfo() reports a different env; but I'm struggling to see which values would be relevant to the success of a single module loading ... Any further thoughts?

... I'm about to edit though. I just realized there are a few steps that may impact things.

comment Enable PHP DOM extension on centOS 5.5 without recompiling
Old post. But, thought it might be good to note here, '--disable-dom' still shows in php_info() after running yum install php-xml. But, it does work.

comment All servers flooded by salt water, is it possible to recover data from multi-platter drives?
I was surprised to see this, but their hard drive recovery sheet does mention fire and flood among the list of possible reasons for data loss. This does lead me to believe they've dealt with it before. Though, I can't imagine it's cheap!
