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.

comment Blocking apache access via user agent string
Yeah, that would block bad user agent strings, but I'm looking to take it a step further and auto-ban ips associated with the bad user agent strings, such that use of the user-agent string gets you banned from that point onwards on that ip. I'd use fail2ban but I haven't found a way to nicely apply that to http requests at this point.
