I'm an Australian by birth but currently live in London. I'm a traveller at heart and I love seeing how different the rest of the world is. I'm always up for something new and interesting.

I've been playing with computers pretty much my whole life, working with them since 2000 in tech support and programming and as a full-time Sysadmin since 2006. I've been fascinated by security since about 2003 and I tend to become the default "security guy" at most places I have worked.

I enjoy all forms of sport and outdoors activities but particularly cycling, hockey, sailboarding, snowboarding, camping and Frisbee. I'm also passionate about the environment, growing my own food, cooking it and eating it.

comment Can't serve gollum wiki with Apache
That looks like a 404, either because it's not running the wiki scripts or the DocumentRoot is wrong. Could you add the rest of the vhost?

You could improve this answer by providing some example output of that command.

comment how to send email from an instance without using sendgrid?
@SvW I didn't read the bit about it being on Google Compute Engine. I saw instance in the title and assumed AWS. My bad.

Is Postfix running? Check the inet_interfaces directive. netstat -tlnp is better than nmap for finding what is listening on your local box.

comment Apache server hangs after a few hours, needs restart
You will probably find it useful to enable server-status and ExtendedStatus on and graph the results of the states of the workers. I have observed a similar set of symptoms to yours with Apache 2.4. Mine shows that roughly every 8 hours, all the existing workers switch to the "Gracefully restarting" state and a new set of normal ones are spawned. Your problem is clearly different to mine but the information you get will probably still be useful.

Checking error logs is generally good advice but I'm not sure where you got the idea that he is using an older PHP version or that there would be conflicts with Apache or that those conflicts would cause the symptoms he describes. Could you elaborate a little?
