comment Staging and Development Server Accessibility Restrictions
Yeah, I was thinking this. I think I'm going to use HTTP Basic Auth, but automatically allow anyone coming from our office network to bypass it, if that is possible.

Because at work they demand to have an actual RPM.

comment created pub/priv keys using putty, created .ssh folder and authorized_keys, still not working
OMG Thank you so much. I had two servers with identical configs. Pubkey worked on one and not the other. Was driving me insane. /var/log/auth said that permissions on my home folder were the culprit. Never would have know about that log or thought to check home folder perms. I only checked the ~/.ssh perms and such. You saved me.

comment why SSH publickey authentification fails on one account but work on the other on the same server
I had the exact same problem, and the group write permissions on the home folder was what fixed it.

If I exceeded that many e-mails I would get a dedicated mail sending service.

comment Apache 2 Redirect Subdomains in Given List
Ok, I was wrong. rewritemap can do what I want. Just all the examples of it I saw were using it in another way.

I know about ReWriteMap, but it doesn't seem to do what I'm looking for. If it does, please provide an example.

comment How to Setup Ubuntu Mail Server with Google Apps?
I can't do the gateway options because I have the free Google Apps, not the pay version. Also, gateway doesn't seem like it does exactly what I want. I don't want to route any mails through my server. I just want the server to be able to send mails with any from address @mydomain. Also, I have tried smarthost in the past. It works, but all emails going out are labled as being from the user that I use to authenticate the smarthost.

comment How do I make sphinx restart when I reboot my Ubuntu server?
This script worked perfectly. For the record, here are the start/stop/restart commands that I used. This is on an Ubuntu Hardy server, and I installed sphinx 0.9.8.1-release from source. start /usr/local/bin/searchd stop /usr/local/bin/searchd --stop restart /usr/local/bin/searchd --stop && /usr/local/bin/searchd

comment How to bring .vimrc around when I SSH?
I guess this is as good as it gets. The trick is that I have to setup a repository on a machine that is accessible from all the other machines. With a secure network topology, that's not always easy.

comment How to bring .vimrc around when I SSH?
Yeah, this is too cumbersome. I have to do lots of poking around the remote machines to find the files I want, and often have to edit with sudo privilege.

comment All sub-domains to one IP in hosts file?
Another note. I was able to use dnsmasq to make this work. However, on Ubuntu I had to modify the dhcp client configuration of the host machine to prepend 127.0.0.1 to the resolv.conf.

comment All sub-domains to one IP in hosts file?
This is something interesting. At the present time, this does seem to be the correct answer, so I will mark it as such. However, it doesn't actually solve my problem, perhaps because it is not solve-able. Just something to think about.
