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.

comment Fail over to DNS provider
How many domains do you need to handle? I don't recommend doing this yourself unless you need fine grain control of dozens of zones. There are many DNS Service providers that provide near 100% uptime. If you need failover, then consider using a provider that can serve as a secondary DNS rather trying to do this internally.

comment Permission, apache user and www folder in Linux
In practice, the issue you raise is far less of a concern than a compromised web application. The likelihood of someone logging into via another means and writing a file to that directory is very low compared to the likelihood that your web application will have an exploit that writes to the directory anyway.

comment 5-7 second latency between Apache server and MySQL server when website calls on database server
Are you connecting to MySQL over a private or public network? Are you using an IP or domain name? If you try to load a PHP page (e.g. phpinfo) that does not have a DB call it is fast?
