comment Apache on CentOS 6 Unresponsive
Check your access and error log and look for the 404 error, and then see if the page mentioned in the logfile matches what you set in the configuration file. You will need to restart or reload Apache.

Steven, to check for issues with Swap, use a utility like top. Many basic sysadmin books will show you how to do this.

comment Seconds_behind_master value keeps on increasing in MySQL replication slave
MySQL 5.0 reached it's end-of-life some time ago, and the latest MySQL 5.0 release is 5.0.96 (you have MySQL 5.0.77). Many replication bugs have been fixed since MySQL 5.0.77, and replication performance has improved quite a bit since even MySQL 5.1. There area many reasons for MySQL replication delays in older versions of MySQL.

comment freebsd cannot start mysql for the first time
The permissions 1777 are way too permissive and should only be used temporarily, and should generally be avoided. Leaving those in place for a long time is a security problem.

comment Why is Linux kdump not writing to /var/crash?
No I do not have a watchdog rebooting the machine. Turns out that the LSI controller + Samsung SSDs are periodically freezing for reasons that we don't totally understand.

comment Why doesn't Kosovo have its own ccTLD yet?
A ccTLD isn't always associated with a real-world political entity. The domain for the former Soviet Union still exists as .su. nic.su/dns/domain/su.html

comment How to generate a Self Signed SSL Certificate bound to IP address?
Your browser will still complain due to a lack of trust with any self-signed certificate. "self signed" mean's that the certificate was not signed by any trusted Certificate Authority, and the browser will not trust it by default.

A broken disk shouldn't lead to a state of 'initializing' it should lead to a state of 'repairing'.
