comment cron job occasionally not running
What if you move that particular line to another location in your crontab file? Does some other cron job then start failing? The fact that the cronjob sometimes works makes this more difficult to solve. Have you ever tried to run strace against the cron process around 21:00 and see what it does?

comment 500 Internal Server Error on Wordpress - BUT WORKS from a different country
It's perfectly possible to configure mod_security to react only to certain URLs, such as /wp-admin/* and ignore the rest. Of course, not even mod_security is needed for this, one can create such rules with mod_rewrite with ease. First check if there's some strange rules in your .htaccess file in WordPress root directory (or inside the wp-admin directory)

comment 500 Internal Server Error on Wordpress - BUT WORKS from a different country
Maybe Apache's mod_security + geoip is in use and requests coming from India/another country than USA are being redirected to some page, which returns 500 Internal Server Error?

comment rsync : write failed - No space left on device (28)
Can you manually create files on that file system? Sometimes when I have seen this situation, file system was somehow corrupted and needed fsck, or the hard drive was dying.

Try nfsstat, and take a look at the numbers both when using your application and when measuring other benchmarks.

Please be noted that it's perfectly possible to launch external applications from OpenOffice.org itself! Shell("/path/to/program",1,parameters-the-program-accepts,true) or so.

comment Unable to log in to MySQL
Wrong password, wrong username and/or wrong MySQL instance you are trying to connect. How would we know the answer with such a short description of your problem? In theory, MySQL could be configured in a way that user 'admin' cannot connect from 'localhost' at all, but I suspect that is not the problem.

comment Creating FTP user to access a specific directory with SFTP in Linux Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS
Since you have only one user to match against, try ChrootDirectory /home/myftpuser or so. Also check out the directory permissions.
