I am a highly motivated, results-driven IT professional with 10 years experience, a systems engineer who enjoys working on large-scale systems and challenging problems. I have experience with large number of servers (10.000+) connected via WAN and LAN, which makes it possible for cloud providers to deliver reliable services to customers

My current role is: systems engineer of the team which runs the websites.

On the top of usual systems engineering tasks, I like to develop softwares, my main language is Ruby (and I use Ruby on Rails of course :) ) but I can read and understand (and fix) Perl and Python, however it is not my favorite. I started to learn Erlang recently, which helps me understand the challenges what software developers face with distributed systems.

comment Running multiple sites on a LAMP with secure isolation
how can you deface a site is all the files are immutable in that directory? php shell_exec is really bad stuff you can avoid it to use open_basedire and such security solutions. or as i said different chroot for each guy :)

This is exactly what Nginx does using simple http backends. But becase you no clue about this just press the minus flag :)

comment ssl virtualhosts with apache ip requirements
There are couple of ways to do that: one is to terminate the SSL on a public ip and use non-ssl connection to the real web server backend, another one is redirect the different public ips to different ports listening on the same internal ip.

comment Setting up monit to work with Varnish and nginx
i guess you might have problem with understanding what i wrote The idea here is that properly written programs will respond to a -15 by cleaning up anything they need to do before dying. immediately. A "kill -9" just causes the process to die; it gets no chance to do any cleanup. Therefore, if you don't know how a program was written, you should try the -15 first, in case it does need to clean up files, flush logs or whatever. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Functional_illiteracy

comment Setting up monit to work with Varnish and nginx
I dont think that he need additional. Just the basic unix commands would do the job.
