comment Enforcing a specific order for cookie headers
You might include the permalink as a comment or edit your question to include it (i.e. just add webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/5231/… toward the end of the question)

Offered mod_headers workaround at Pro Webmasters - would help if you linked between StackExchange sites when cross-posting :)

comment Sending one-time e-mails to a whole bunch of users: use a mailserver or a listserver?
@user59645 - As a developer it makes the most sense to go along with a sysadmin's implementation request. It may be his responsibility to keep your application working after you've moved on to bigger and better projects. Regardless of whether you agree with his reasoning, spending time to do things the way systems wants should make sense to your manager.

@Patrick - That guide can be found here: lowendbox.com/blog/… (though it involves using a different webserver)

@Patrick - Anything that keeps your server from fighting other domU's for swap space will help :)

comment VPS hosting is very slow. What's the bottleneck?
@Patrick - By "disk I/O" I'm referring to low-level random access reading and writing (which involves a great deal of seek time per operation). Disk contention is a well-documented problem for low-end virtual private servers; swap space makes it worse. Related reading: etbe.coker.com.au/2008/08/27/…

comment VPS hosting is very slow. What's the bottleneck?
@Patrick - Yes, I would say that your server is relying upon swap to serve pages. Given that, your bottleneck is most likely disk I/O for all of those swap operations. Disk I/O on a shared server is an onerous bottleneck - do everything you can to avoid it.

comment VPS hosting is very slow. What's the bottleneck?
@Patrick - It appears as though swap space is being allocated, though it may be held without being used. Run vmstat -a 1 and watch the si and so values while you request a page on your site to see how heavily swap is being relied upon (si and so will remain at 0 if your server is not actively using swap).

comment My website is being pestered by “cross_site_scripting.nasl”. What's that about?
@John_Mee - Yes, that's what it looks like (well documented - see link) - typically this type of attack would be combined with a URL shortener/redirect so the visitor would hit your site and malicious JS runs before the user is aware bad things have happened. Link: google.com/search?q=xss+with+404
