comment nginx goes to the wrong site when requested site is not listening on port 80
And 421 - Misdirected request seems very interesting in this situation but I think it is a little premature to send HTTP/2 status codes, maybe in 6 months time....

comment nginx goes to the wrong site when requested site is not listening on port 80
My first instinct is that 403 is not the best because the server is not so much refusing to serve the request as it is unable to serve the request for a site that it doesn't host. So 404 feels more appropriate. But thank you, your solution appears to be what I need, and I'll accept your answer as soon as I've had a moment to try it out.

comment Do I need my own oauth and/or openid connect provider
I'm asking this question on here in stead of Security because I don't feel it is about securing the system, it is about how to implement the chosen security model (i.e. OpenID connect) ... If this is better covered in Security I am happy to have the question moved to there.

comment Do I need my own oauth and/or openid connect provider
Indeed, and I've earmarked python liboauth and/or pyoidc as primary candidates for providing nearly all the functionality I need. There is also libraries from janrain and from google that look promising. None of the libraries tell me whether I need to implement a provider/authorization server or whether I should register my clients AND API separately with the Id-providers.

Heh :-) I almost did not allocate the bounty to you because reading my question and your answer, I think you should have known this at the time you made the original comment and you could have saved me quite some pain if you gave this answer earlier.

comment Changing XEN VM configuration
Actually I typed my answer about 99% finished a long time earlier but got interrupted. Then when I came back to finish up I saw the note "A new answer has been added", but I did not want to lose all may careful work, so I completed my answer despite yours, and the rest is history.

comment Changing XEN VM configuration
@Nils The DomU was shut down before I started the operation, and have not yet been started back up - it is just a test DomU, so it will stay down until I get a better understanding or guidance about what to do. In xm list it currently shows without an ID number (When running it gets an ID number) and no memory allocation, etc, but it is in the list. I don't know xen well enough to know whether that is good or bad.
