comment php writing deprecated errors to apache error log
Congratulations, you have just earned "Spotted one of the many PHP gotcha's" badge! PHP seems to just write the exactly same message to error log than it displays in web pages -- and in the web pages it's annotating the error messages with <b> tags. To boldly log <b> where no software has logged before ... but hey, at least it's not logging in xml format, so it's not completely enterprise-ready yet.

comment Installing mod_proxy for apache on Gentoo
@Redmumba: Kind of spot on. For one-time installation that "USE=foo emerge bar" voodoo is OK, but that method has a one major flaw: if you happen to upgrade your Gentoo or install that certain package again, chances are you will lost those USE flags if you don't remember to provide them again and are not looking at the emerge output carefully. It's better to add those USE flags under /etc/portage/package.use or even create package-specific files under /etc/portage.

comment Problem with LDAP: ldapindex
@Rizo: Does it? At least on my Debian Lenny it runs as openldap user. Although it might be that I have configured the slapd.conf looooong time ago ... :-)

comment Problem with LDAP: ldapindex
And why are you trying to run slapd as root? Does the init script really tell it to do so or have you altered some config files?

comment Problem with LDAP: ldapindex
Is the /var/lib/ldap directory itself owned by openldap:openldap? In your example you only changed the contents of the directory, not the directory itself ... :-)

With accessible, do you mean read-only access or read-write access to everyone?

comment Lighttpd: requesting local URLs via PHP
Is localhost configured to use some proxy? If you try "echo $http_proxy" on the server, does that return some proxy server? Or is PHP configured to use some proxy?

comment Using lynx or wget in cron to call a php script?
I don't know why I'm using -dump (or -source) options, must be some old habit. Gotta try what happens without them ... one way to get notified if something went wrong would be to configure your cron script to return some string like "SUCCESS", and then grep for it. If that string is missing, then send out an e-mail. For example, 'lynx -dump example.com/cron/scriptA.php | grep "SUCCESS" && echo "OK" || ( echo "Not OK" | mail -s 'Something went wrong' swatteam@example.com' )

comment disk hangs during active I / O
How is rsync slow? With the latest (1-3 years old...) 3.x generation it's actually quite fast. Third generation removed the old "I'm gonna generate the whole file list before transferring anything" annoyance, and as a bonus if transfer gets interrupted with rsync, it can nicely continue from the point it was interrupted and it's not gonna copy everything again, like your copy command would. I'm using rsync for transferring 4.5 terabytes (around 35 millions files) and it works just fine. :)
