comment The Apache mod rewrite module doesn't work when using the IP
@KristvanBesien: A <VirtualHost> need not contain a ServerName directive. In the absence of one, it will use the top-level ServerName (typically dynamically determined). Additionally, any configured and applicable (based on its IP/port tuple(s)) VHost will always "win" versus the main context.

comment How to monitor glusterfs volumes
@ArieSkliarouk: Updated to cover both cases, but be forewarned that the relevant message was removed in November 2011; see git.gluster.org/… . Thus, this is likely not going to work on newer Glusters. If you find the shorter code harder to understand, that's fine, but it is significantly more robust than using a temporary file, so consider refactoring it for readability instead of dismissing it for perceived lack of that attribute.

comment CentOS lost Root Access
Speaking as someone who works for a hosting company: if you ask Support to give you a hand with this, I 100% guarantee they have a process in place for adding these sorts of parameters to the boot process. And if you ask very nicely and describe what you did very well, they'll likely be able to very quickly solve your limit issue. There's even a small chance they can do it without rebooting the machine.

Also, while we're on documentation: please include a complete request/response pair (not just the response as you have above), and the output of "varnishlog" (you can sanitize IP addresses if you'd like, but leave the rest alone, please) during that test.

comment Varnish not showing custom headers
@Kenny so I take it that your X-Wut header isn't showing up? It might be worthwhile to simply dump your entire VCL in here. In this case, we're looking for mistakes, and requiring you to know where those mistakes are only works if you already know what mistakes you made. For example, you're modifying the req in your vcl_fetch, which isn't going to accomplish very much in almost all cases. This tells me that you probably are building a VCL largely from snippets, which means we need to see the whole kit 'n' caboodle in order to diagnose the cause of the symptoms you're seeing.

comment Mysql very slow, out-of-the-box configuration
@Netismine: You want to attach it to the "mysqld" process. Can you post your my.cnf in the question section as an edit, so it's easier to read?
