Linux troubleshooter and Python charmer.

The Unix utilities' underlying philosophy is to "do one thing and do it well". These building blocks, simple and easily shown as correct, are easier to combine into the system a company needs. This has been the focus of my career to this day: harnessing the network effects of solid software to create better systems. Specialties

Debian Linux, the PostgreSQL database server, the Apache HTTP server and the Python programming language.

comment Cygwin's RSYNC for large data transfer
Can you check if the rsync server is stalled, waiting for the disk subsystem? I'm not sure how to do this on Windows, sorry; I'm gonna guess Russinovich can help :D

comment Apache As-Is Redirect is Internal… WHY?
You inspired me to look at the RFC; section 6.2.2 of ietf.org/rfc/rfc3875 says your server will do an internal subrequest if you return a bare "Location: /full-path-without-http-host" without other headers. Graham Dumpleton (author of mod_wsgi) says Apache will also accept an Status: 200 header. Perhaps you can try to return a Content-Type (for example) and see if the redirect is still handled as an internal subrequest?

comment A script that verifies that Apache (or any account) has proper permission to navigate to a directory
Please be aware that -r is for files only. If you need to know if Apache is capable of doing a DirectoryIndex on a folder, test -rx. /cc @conrad-shultz

comment A script that verifies that Apache (or any account) has proper permission to navigate to a directory
To be honest, I was going to use other flags for test, then I read your script and bitch-slapped myself. Anyway, both our scripts fail for the drwx-----x case.

comment How can I create a custom TLD (for an Intranet) on my Wi-Fi network with a Windows computer and Apache?
Sorry, didn't mean to preach to the choir. It's just too easy to go with the default example.local domain that I just wanted to get that out in the clear.

I mostly agree with @MDMarra so consider buying the example.com domain and serving a separate corp.example.com domain from DNS servers reachable only from "internal" addresses.
