comment Dovecot ignoring maximum number of IMAP connections
That seemed to work! Not sure why its not loading /etc/dovecot/conf.d/20-imap.conf, perhaps I need to explicitly define this in some load path. Thanks!

comment Querying a web API vs local database during a traffic spike?
Thanks for your input. Yes, it's clear to me that the lookup would be faster but under load hitting the database would be more ram/CPU intensive than processing an additional http request. I would imagine that over a certain number of connections per second, the server would be less likely to become unavailable querying a webapi than its local database. And yes, we have a subscription to keep the database up to date.

comment Windows script to change from DHCP to Static IP addressing
This script doesn't work. It only detects an ipv6 address since it just records the last ip in the objAdapter.IPAddress array. Also why does it need to know the DNS search order, DNS suffix search order, DHCP lease times?

comment Windows script to change from DHCP to Static IP addressing
The script needs to be executed by our home customers to whose machines we have no access to. We intend to distribute it via a downloads page on our website. Our application requires that the customer switches to static networking before running the app and then switching back afterward.

comment How to securely partition blog folder on existing Apache website
Suexec is indeed the obvious solution however the problem is that suexec is configured at the virtual host level and how are we supposed to create a /blog directory under a different virtual host?

comment Extract number of users connected to IPSsec/L2tpd server
Actually that helped me find the solution. netstat -i | grep "ppp" | wc -l gives me a count of connected users since pppd creates a new virutal interface for each connected user. Thanks!
