comment Can I run a cron job more frequently than every minute?
I meant if you don't use a pidfile. If your job runs every X minutes, and takes more than X minutes to finish, you'll end up with jobs stacking up. If your job is also limited by some sort of resource (CPU, network/disk bandwidth, etc), then running more at a time will make it take even longer to finish, and eventually your computer will turn into a thrashing mess.

comment Missing mysql.sock file
You have two problems: 1. You have a skip-bdb option in your config somewhere, which is no longer valid for current MySQL. 2. You have a skip-innodb option in your config as well which is disabling MySQL's only good storage engine.

comment Downgrade PHP 5.4 to 5.3 in Debian
@dAm2K The whole point of sid/unstable is that it's where new packages go for testing. While it's usually not broken, there are no guarantees, and upgrading at the wrong moment might give you a broken system if you're unlucky. See debian.org/releases/sid for details.

Sid is named after the evil kid in Toy Story. He breaks toys. And servers.

I certainly hope this doesn't mean you're using debian unstable (sid) on a server. Because that'd be a really, really, really bad idea.

comment Tie a process to specific CPU cores
The kernel is already pretty good at figuring out what CPU cores to use for tasks. Second-guessing it with taskset usually leads to worse results.

comment non-root cp -a preserves ownership?
@nachum: Any NFS server which manages to get permissions THIS badly wrong is probably horrifically insecure in other ways. There's probably ways to read / write / delete files that you shouldn't have access to.
