comment Why would localhost:8080 give a 404 error?
You can use sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1 to disable IPv6. You can also disable IPv6 on individual interfaces. I created a /etc/sysctl.d/80-disable-ipv6.conf file with all disable.ipv6 values set to 0 when I wanted IPv6 disabled.

comment Apache authentication inside a WordPress install
@Charles: You can point a subdomain directly at the admin directory. Have you tried without the .htaccess file. If it doesn't work without the .htaccess file then it won't work with one. On Ubuntu the WordPress software is in /usr/share, but symlinked to /var/www for the web server to access it.

comment Should a server's hostname have a DNS A record?
You will need an A record for your domain if you want it to be reachable. Service sub-domains (www, pop3, etc.) except email can be handled by CNAME records.

comment Why do people put empty index.html files into web directories?
This is good defensive programming. It gives a clean result without exposing the content through auto-indexing. Many more benefits, with little downside other than not logging forbidden accesses.

comment Exim and TLS AUTH not working for some clients
@Ernie: Sorry didn't verify the signing authority. Problem and solution is the same as for self-signed certificates. I am not sure why GeoTrust isn't trusted, perhaps they issued new certificates recently and they haven't been picked up. I show 5 different certificates from GeoTrust.
