comment How to make system wide alias for “ls -l”?
This answer was helpful. In Ubuntu 14.04, when I opened my .bashrc file, near the end, there's a pre-created section similar to the if [...] @quanta mentions, except is uses .bash_aliases. All I had to do is echo the alias into echo "alias ll-'ls -l'" >> ~/.bash_aliases since .bashrc already had something setup in this environment. And I closed/re-opened putty.

Thanks nerve. Your answer led to me double checking the lo setup, which I did come across in my research but didn't fully understand what I was looking for. That lead to this SF answer that got things back working again. serverfault.com/questions/443491/…

It is a dedicated VPS server but I don't know if it's OpenVZ or not. Though, we are switching to a cloud hosted server this year, as time permits. I'll have to keep that in mind during the switch.

comment Server can't ping or connect to self
@MichaelHampton No idea. This was a standard Ubuntu setup from our web host. I see I lost the loopback device after a recent update and reboot and I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it or if our host set it up that way to start. What should it be?
