I think there isn't a good upgrade path.

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.

Thanks, that's just what I was surfing for.

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?

comment Prevent APT from overwriting custom files
How silly. I guess I'll go learn about diversions and if no one reports back with a better solution, I'll document the details of how I use a diversion for this here.

comment Can upstart handle symbolic links to config files?
Lame. Indeed symlinks are ignored without a manual call to reload config. Sigh. I prefer symlinks. Cleaner in my use-case. Oh well. I'll just copy the files in, like jerk.

comment How can I increase ssh security? Can I require both a key and password?
I also use the DenyHosts application to help lock out people who keep trying to get in, and failing. A nice little pro-active automated way of blacklisting people..

@JdeBP Okay, cool, just thought I'd throw that out there. Just in case a simple answer like that had been overlooked. Thanks!

comment Unable to set up SSL support for Apache 2 on Debian
I think djangofan's correct here.. My Apache server's all have two different ssl certificate files, three in some cases, that must be referenced in the config.. The third applies when it's a for-real ssl cert, not a self-signed one..
