comment Can't connect to (or write to) a socket file, despite being owner?
You might potentially want to find out what that + sign represents for the directory myapp. (+ means there's "some" extended permissions set, off the top of my head, getfacl/setfacl or lsattr/chattr, there may be more.). Combined with what the uid/euid gid/egid is for the process at the point which it fails. Other possible sources; SELinux, or some other security framework will also give you permission denied without it necessarily being visible from i.e. ls.

comment How can I tell if the server supports hot-swapping drives?
I'm sure your server supports hot-swap, in that your drives or SAS/sata controller(s) won't melt if you pull the drives out and insert them again. What's more interesting is really, is there a HW raid controller there ? Is it software raid ? Is it running a RAID level for which you can tolerate drive loss ? Are you using some other form of storage aggregation which is amenable to "hot swapping" drives.

comment Why do I get “Permission denied (publickey)” when trying to SSH from local Ubuntu to a Amazon EC2 server?
@NathanBasanese I'm not exactly sure I understand your question. So I'll re-iterate. "Permission denied (publickey)" only means that it could not complete public key authentication. It's an error message generated by the client, all the server told the client is that it couldn't complete public key authentication, the server includes no hint as to why it couldn't complete. It's obtuse by design, just to avoid leaking any information to a potential adversary.

comment Why do I get “Permission denied (publickey)” when trying to SSH from local Ubuntu to a Amazon EC2 server?
@NathanBasanese: "permission denied (publickey)" is essentially you didn't offer any keys it recognizes, so while one of those cases is indeed that sshd on the other end is refusing to use that key, it would also include that you simply don't have the appropriate key(s) on the client side.
