comment Yum does not install specific RPM version with custom repo
You may have a naming issue. You may want to compare package information between two packages using rpm -qp in your repo. I don't see why you would get this behavior without a repo data, package naming or corrupted RPM database.

comment rkhunter warnings - whitelisting
What version of rkhunter are you using? Make sure you do not have multiple copies of rkhunter installed. I've seen issues when you install from RPM and source and you end up with different configuration files. Check /usr/local/etc and /etc/ for config files.

comment What are the pros and cons of using S3 as a data access server?
You may want to rework your post into how to use S3 as a configuration management system. As it is worded, I think we will end up with a debate about configuration management - which would be off topic.

comment dig & nslookup can't resolve local hosts unless I specify the (local) DNS server to use
Appears you are querying different nameservers. Appears 142.3.102.202 does not have any A records configured for the domain. So I am not sure where you are managing records?

Do you have a nameserver running on your localhost?

comment Tool to analyze postfix maillog
Sometimes I have to recursively grep for this. Extract all lines with the desired to/from pairs, extract the message IDS then grep again. Pretty easy to script up using grep/awk/sed/while loops.

comment Mysql through ssh often can't connect or timeout
What are the various timeouts for SSH connections and MySQL connections. I have seen instances where the mysql client timesout while waiting on the ssh tunnel to connect. In many cases this was due to reverse DNS lookups on the server side of the connection. You can disable these reverse DNS lookups in sshd's config files.

comment nginx doesn't match server names
Do you have any other nginx configuration files or includes? Perhaps a default configuration file with a server definition that is taking precedence over your configuration? What do your error logs report when you try to browse to the domain?

comment htaccess order Deny,Allow rule
Your updated code allow,deny should work. The allow list is processed first followed by the deny list. So if an IP is listed in the deny list it will be blocked since it will be last matched. Just one note, if you have too many deny rules you may see performance issues. All rules are processed on every request. "Too many" depends on your hardware and server loads but something to keep in mind with any tool that auto-adds rules to .htaccess.
