comment Squid workers and server cpus
you can try the lscpu if available to you for listing the cpus. I sometimes find that output easier to read.

comment How can I create cron jobs in specific files on Linux Centos
because you said "How can I make root run those jobs for all files in that folder?" and putting stuff in the folder @Michael said "/etc/cron.d" requires you specify a user to run each job.

comment How can I create cron jobs in specific files on Linux Centos
this requires you put root after the time in the file, like 30 3 * * 1-5 root /home/user/scripts/backup.sh

comment How to make RHEL have persistent local hdd name?
have you tried setting another name than "sda", because chanses are that by the time ur rule is read, sda have been created already.

comment How to make RHEL have persistent local hdd name?
OK I dont get it why you'd need the same name on the local disk, just because the other services are configured like that but if that is somehow a requirement for you then fine; use UDEV; UUID won't work. As for the where of it, how do you expect someone other than yourself to know where to use it? wherever you use /dev/sda today would be my bet. Anyway if you have to have the same device name on all your servers, then make an udev rule. If you can't get it working, debug it.

OK but then what about using UUID or writing an udev rule like other answers suggest? you can write a simpler one then the one you have, or follow dawuds answer. You can find the disks under /dev/disk/by-uuid/. Just use that path instead, it is persistent.

comment Hardening CentOS 6 web server security
I'd also enable SELinux, since this is on a CentOS server.

comment Setup web terminal access in case ssh crashes
This is the best way to fix this IMO, because SSHD should not crash unless something is the matter with the system. It can be an OOM problem or something else. Also, if your hw supports it you can get something like an iLO card to provide web based console access, because if you get a kernel panic or something then sshd will be unavailable to you. Also SSH is Secure shell, any other backdoor you'd want to install can provide a backdoor for malicious purposes too...
