comment HTTP to HTTPS with mod_rewrite; Apache needs restart
mod_rewrite isn't recommended and to use VirtualHosts instead -- This is not correct, as mod_rewrite and Apache VirtualHosts are not mutually exclusive, and can be used together. VirtualHosts are the preferred way to serve a SSL site, and are the Apache default. However, you would still need a second mechanism to perform the redirect, and this would generally be either mod_alias or mod_rewrite, as @M Glatki indicates below.

comment Persist IP address alias across reboots in CentOS/RHEL 6 using “ip” command
Honestly, is this feature documented anywhere? It's vaguely hinted at in /usr/share/doc/initscripts-*/sysconfig.txt, which quickly mentions configurations like IPADDRn=.

comment IPMI / Remote management missing options for IP Address in BIOS
That generation of Supermicro's IPMI had many security vulnerabilities (See community.rapid7.com/community/metasploit/blog/2013/07/02/… , & look under google.com/search?q=supermicro+ipmi+security ), and IIRC Supermicro only patched some of them, and didn't think it was worth it to patch all of the problems. Make absolutely sure that the BMC is on a private, secure network. See Supermicro's BMC Security Best Practices.

comment Allowing httpd to run a bash script in /usr/bin/
Could you clean up the formatting of this question? It's hard to tell what you are trying to convey after the ausearch -l -i | grep httpd command.

comment IPMI / Remote management missing options for IP Address in BIOS
In the Supermicro X8 motherboards, the BIOS does not always have an option to configure the BMC. In those old servers, IPMI & the BIOS were not always well integrated, and the level of integration was pretty variable across their product lines. Supermicro may have used 2-3 different BMCs from different vendors across the X8 product line, and Supermicro's support was very sloppy. This situation improved with the X9 motherboards.

comment CentOS 7 Unable to Resolve Any Host Names
127.0.0.1 is the first DNS server in the list, so you should verify that it is replying with the expected results. The resolver will query the servers in the order listed. Your host will ONLY query 127.0.0.1 server, and will not try the second or third server unless the first server times out. This means that if you query 127.0.0.1 and it responds either positively (like hostx.example.org has address 192.168.1.100) or negatively (like Host foo.example.org not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)), the next two servers will not be queried at all.

comment Backing up MySQL MyISAM databases by copying the physical folders
Oh I see-- you're backing up 20GB. Restoring a 20GB MySQL database shouldn't take an order of days. For me, backups took about 10 minutes including the overhead of compression, and restoring took 10-20 minutes. This was on fast SSDs, but even on a slower array, mysqldump shouldn't be very slow.

comment Backing up MySQL MyISAM databases by copying the physical folders
Oracle's MySQL Enterprise Backup is a great product, and much faster then mysqldump, and allows live backups of InnoDB data. However, with the MyISAM engine, MEB still does a FLUSH TABLES WITH READ LOCK; See: MySQL Enterprise Backup 4.0 User's Guide/7.1 Optimizing Backup Performance/MyISAM Considerations
