comment Dealing with development subdomains
Ah, a tool for creating the symlink in the /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/ directory, yeah, I've got a manually created symlink in there that maps to the latter config.

comment Dealing with development subdomains
I have indeed restarted apache. a2ensite I haven't heard of before, so I expect no. I am wondering whether I have to set up a wildcard subdomain with the DNS or whatever. Not sure what is best practice there.

Using /etc/email-addresses definitely ended up solving my problem, gracias.

comment Via logwatch, I get messages that root is opening sessions “-> nobody”. Is this a security concern, or normal operation?
Hmmm, okay, so that may be indicative of the configuration still allowing attempts on the root account's password, good to know.

comment logwatch explanation
A default install of denyhosts will slow down that type of cracking attempt as well.

comment Via logwatch, I get messages that root is opening sessions “-> nobody”. Is this a security concern, or normal operation?
Ok, just wanted to make sure. Just a little bit of a follow up question, even in the cases where root login is disabled (my intent and the way that I have configured ssh, as well as denyhost), do those authentication failure messages still occur?

comment apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1 for ServerName
For the -default- virtualhost, not just a specific virtualhost.

comment non-www domains prevent hosting of static content on the same domain, correct?
I don't really see the cost of another domain as the biggest issue, more like the maintenance & monitoring of another domain. Certainly it's not a major difference, but it's one I'm trying to quantify.

Fair enough, that sounds about right.

comment non-www domains prevent hosting of static content on the same domain, correct?
That is true. I guess what I meant was: If you use example.com as your canonical url, and you use cookies, then the cookie will be set to use example.com as it's base. Which I will rephrase. Certainly this isn't a problem for sites that don't use cookies at all, and won't ever use cookies in the future.

comment How can I set up mysql logs so that syntax errors are logged?
Right, I should have been more clear that I already checked that log out, I was hoping that there was a way to view queries with improper syntax and ignore queries that have the proper syntax. Because viewing everything in the log is so spammy that it's useless.
