comment DHCP clients geting ip address after booting in DHCP environment
It will get an IP when it requests an IP from the dhcp server. If you need an IP before the OS has booted you need to request one before with whatever option/software is available to you.

comment using ftp instead of ftps
Saying that "Server side is protected by linux firewalls" and thus does not needing to secure incoming FTP connections, points to incompetence.

comment What does it take for a sysadmin to have happy customers?
It's also good to note that all the complaints are actually IT related problems and not complaints about IT itself. This is not critique against the system administrator. It's actual work, that can be solved or answered.

comment What does it take for a sysadmin to have happy customers?
As to the WHY section. Keep a printed schedule where you have written down all you have to do. So when someone asks if you can help them with somthing you take out the schedule and points to a time that is free. And say i can help you then. There will be little to no complaints, its very effective to show people how busy you are and you get to say no less often.

comment File system preventing execution of files
What does the 'mount' command say? Perhaps there are errors that are forcing it to re-mount with restrictive options?

comment nginx: browser rewriting http request to https when not wanted
It's a security feature, chrome and firefox for example will remember the STS setting and all subsequent surfing to that domain will, before sending it to the server, add a s to http before retrieving the page.This is for man in the middle protection and so an attacker can not remove the setting and force http://

comment telnet cannot connect to port without firewall
Do the VPS service allow you to have a public facing mysql server on 3306? Are there any port forwarding settings that you can do at your VPS provider?

comment telnet cannot connect to port without firewall
Well then if there is nothing coming in on port 3306 at all, you need go one step back. Is your server nat:ed? If not, does it have an additional router hop with a firewall before "internet"? Can your client computer actually connect to TCP port 3306? Does it have a firewall blocking the outbound connection? Is the ISP blocking the connection? What are your route tables? Do you have a fault IPV4 route to your host and are connecting over ipv6 with ssh and thats why it works?
