revised Convert from VMDK to OVF
grammar++, and since that was 1 char fix I pointlessly changed other things.. I hope you're happy.

comment What is the best way to block IPs from an apache2 web server?
Yeah, I agree with c4urself - iptables feels like the right place to deal with this sort of thing.

comment Why does sub_filter seem to not work when used in conjunction with proxy_pass?
I didn't have proxy_set_header Accept-Encoding ""; you need that to tell the backend that compression isn't allowed in a response.

comment EXT4 “No space left on device (28)” incorrect
In my embedded application, XFS, sadly, is not an option for me. Problem not solved. :'(

comment How to forward specific log file outside of /var/log with rsyslog to remote server?
Figured it out. My problem was that /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf already had a statement beginning with .;auth;authpriv.none.. That line seems to take precedence. So by adding the last line you've given, it has no effect. Instead, the pre-existing similar one must be modified. Very helpful. Thanks!

comment How to forward specific log file outside of /var/log with rsyslog to remote server?
This is very helpful, thank you Bryan. My only challenge here is the line to keep the extra logs out of the client-side /var/log/syslog doesn't work for me on Ubuntu 12.04. Probably a PEBKAC, but I wonder if this is a known challenge?
