comment How to enable SPDY in LiteSpeed?
A quick google and I read a comment that SPDY will be available in LightSpeed 5. That's currently listed as a release candidate on the webpage. So you probably running version 4 which doesn't support SPDY yet.

comment df showing 28G of total space, du showing size of '/' as 400+ G
You do realise that du works across filesystem mounts don't you? so du / counts partition 1,2 & 5 assuming they are all mounted.

comment Forward traffic to local LAN IP while keeping the originator IP
@DanieleTesta - Why do you need the origin IP? is it for logging purposes or something else. Please update your question with a bit more background info. It might be that you're trying to solve with the wrong method.

comment Why do we still use power supplies on datacenter servers?
The comment about AC was invented to prevent voltage drop is plain wrong. There were 2 competing systems. DC & AC. AC has the ability to be stepped up/down with a transformer. It's not that simple with DC. But DC doesn't suffer from Skin Effect. So AC has losses that DC does not. That's why we have some cables that are DC. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skin_effect. Anyway, AC won out over DC.
