comment Can't push git updates & run Unix commands when connecting via SSH
The way your question is written it sounds as if you COULD have performed these tasks BEFORE you made these changes to PATH. In particular, your use of "after that". Also, if you're logging into a unix (linux) system, what "unix command" are you referring to - ANY command? The shell built-ins? Anything BUT the shell built-ins?

comment Very irregular disk write performance and repeated SATA timeouts
"Customer support" isn't likely to give you the help needed for this. Escalate the call!

comment Fedora 21 Port Forwarding with firewalld (firewall-cmd); how does it REALLY work? Or, does it?
OK, thank you, Michael. ... If I was to ditch Fedora, what distribution might you suggest? I don't really have time to learn another distribution, but I can't really be suffering through this, either. Like someone wise once said, "I got a life, too, ya know, when do I live it?"

comment Fedora 21 Port Forwarding with firewalld (firewall-cmd); how does it REALLY work? Or, does it?
...You REALLY know that there's a good reason? If you are correct, it suggests deep incompetence somewhere. After all, why should the firewall software work / not work based on only the minimal, or the "server" set be installed? I mean, "server" implies MORE! ...I'm perplexed at your response. -heavy-sigh- I really need this behind me. What I'm concerned about is that I do this re-install and STILL have the problem when I should be configuring ip-tables instead.

No, I don't have another day to spend doing that. ... Other than having software I don't need on the box, does it matter?

comment Fedora 21: Firewalld (firewall-cmd) won't PERMANENTLY assign interfaces to zones?
@MichaelHampton (and mat) ... The system announced to me I lost two points over Mattdm's edit of my question. Just reporting what it said. As for the rest; whatever. I'm SO annoyed with Fedora's ABJECT FAILURE to do basic port forwarding MAYBE I AM CRANKY. Sorry for sharing it with you. What, I have to back-track to ip-tables?! Apparently so. This has cost me a day, at least.

comment Configuration of spamassassin on Fedora 21 with Postfix
@mattdm ...OK, -soft-smile- Well done. Your reply was also polite, thanks. I apologize for my ire, you had reasonable reasons. I've been using this software (as a sys-admin + ) since version 1.1, but haven't had time to keep up with all the project details... ...and SOME of the changes have been very annoying! (not that you're responsible for them.) Thanks for updating me.

Unfortunately, it wasn't nearly so simple. I apparently did not make it clear, but I had already tried starting the milter... See the real answer below.

comment Configuration of spamassassin on Fedora 21 with Postfix
@mattdm ...I'm not against learning. I will read your reply that hopefully does two things: 1) explain how / why "fc" is STILL used on ALL the software (packages and uname, in particular), and; 2) support your assertion with outside references, preferably from the project itself. ...I do note that "name changes" happen, but they're not meant to be taken as far as you have, such as Postgres, now known as "PostgreSql" - the Sql ending was added to advertise the then-new SQL capabilities. However, it's STILL, "Postgres" to those on the project and those with more experience.

I would NEVER vote someone down for expressing a different opinion, however, your answer is unresponsive to the question. If In can get SpamAssassin to work, I'm not going with your suggestion. Thanks though.

comment Configuration of spamassassin on Fedora 21 with Postfix
@mattdm ...You are mistaken in your edit about Fedora Core. For evidence of this, on ANY younger version, simply type 'uname -a' and / or look at the installed software packages as returned by 'rpm -qa'. ...Ever wonder what the 'fc' stands for?! Yes, you got it, Fedora Core. I don't have time enough in my life to argue with WRONG pedants like you, however, I do respectfully request you please NEVER bother to update MY questions again - at least, certainly NOT for this particular point.

comment Fail to trigger my php script when mail received by my Postfix
@SADOK Well, I have never heard of such a thing! ...When I signed up, I guess it was early in the process and maybe we all had up-vote capability right off. . . However, I just gave your question an up-vote so maybe now you can have that ability, too!

comment Samba 4 Fedora 21, I can create the share and log in, but cant read/execute existing folders
@RobinMasters Glad to give a good suggestion - you can give it an up-vote, you know! Encourage good suggestions! :) And, by the way, SELinux secures ALL the files - it's not just a directory-at-the-top issue; most likely, your re-copying in the files changed their SELinux meta-data and that's what cured it. ... I think a -R flag might have cured it for you without the reload.

@MichaelHampton Thanks... And, by the way, did you happen to notice my almost identical question about SpamAssassin? Find that query here: serverfault.com/questions/683044/… Thanks much.

comment Configuration of ClamAV on Fedora Core 21 with Postfix
@MichaelHampton ...Second time of late you've asked me about that! So far, I've never found answers I needed there, though I admit, because of low success-rate, I'm slow to look there. However, in this case, the README, ChangeLog, AUTHORS, BUGS, NEWS are of no help, the FAQ is empty, of the two URLs in UPGRADE, one doesn't work and the other is of no help. That leaves the three PDFs which are useless on a non-windowing system like this one is, and have to be moved (PITA). Of these clamdoc.pdf was interesting, but no help here, and phishsigs_howto.pdf and signatures.pdf were also no help.

@DennisNolte ...Duly noted, yes. ...I don't think SADOK (the questioner) likes my answer! But I think it's simple enough and realistic. ...He's a PHP developer so if your only tool is a hammer, everything begins to look like a nail!

comment Apache “Client denied by server configuration”, despite allowing access to directory (vhost configuration)
If I had time, I'd log a bug about this because httpd -t says there's no problem using the older syntax, and neither does httpd -S. In my mind, the whole point of a configuration checker is that it should be pointing out problems! ...If you have a directory you're referencing w/o this, it won't work - simple as that. ...Thumbs up on the answer.
