comment How to setup Apache 2.2.3 to send “last modified” etc
The term weak is simply semantics. The point is that using Last-Modified headers in the absence of other caching instructions leaves the cache period up to the HTTP client. If a resource has not been modified since the Last-Modified date, the resource should be considered fresh. In contrast, when using an Expires or Cache-Control header the origin can set an explicit freshness period.

comment How many power circuits do I have in a rack?
I should have said 2x30A 110V. I think that's what we used to have. Don't forget room for a switch (if needed) and out of band tools. The last thing you want is a tripped circuit breaker. Also if you do run near peak, be sure to have your PDU enforce staggered power ups. Nearly any system can cause an amp spike on power-up.

Please see serverfault.com/help/how-to-ask. Post your current configurations, state your goals and specific error your are receiving. What results do you get now? Unlike some sites, SF is geared to professional conversations about system administration not a how-to or tutorial discussion group.

comment How many power circuits do I have in a rack?
Most colo facilities will permit no more than 2x20A of power in one rack. Contact your specific colo provider for details. City fire ordinances may limit the power as well. For your systems, I would ask the manufacturer what is the expected amp draw and peak load. You will want to provision power such that you have some overhead for switches, out of band management tools etc. Note that most providers want you to stay within 80% of your peak usage so not to trip circuit breakers.

comment Nginx 502 Bad Gateway - 111: Connection refused, port not being listened to
@ADM I think that error only happens if you try to spin up another pool on the same port. This would need to be verified but I don't think that error occurs if you have two pools with the same name but different ports.
