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.

You could measure it yourself with strace -T -tt or by wrapping your database accesses in timestamp logging.

301 redirects will be cached by your browser. You really want a 302 here.

comment #1130 - Host 'localhost' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server after acunetix scan
stackoverflow.com/questions/18449071/… stackoverflow.com/questions/11513888/… Doesn't look like there are any good solutions. I would wipe it, reinstall MySQL and restore the data from backups.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 'Not authorized to open root of edit operation'
There's probably an Allow from all somewhere in your config and the Satisfy any means that is enough to allow the request without requesting authentication. The difference is probably with the default configuration of Apache that is included with Ubuntu 14.04 as opposed to the difference in Apache versions between Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04.
