comment Nginx not looking for ssl cert in location specified in nginx.conf
Blah, indeed you are correct. I read that error message like three times but I missed the /ssl/ in the config stanza. Given that, Chris has the right idea, I'd start greping either nginx.crt or ssl_certificate in /etc and searching for duplicate directives deeper in the config.

comment Why would you internally use NAT?
You'd have to talk to your network engineering group for a definitive answer. You'd need to give some more information on the topology before a solid opinion could be given i think. It might not even be NAT, it might just be them funneling connections through firewalls to maintain isolation and security between segments of the datacenter.

comment How can I drop a MySQL user whose username contains unprintable characters?
based on this I think you can safely delete the user record manually, as long as you ditch the privileges manually as well... for the record, i've done this without issue in the past too.

comment How can I drop a MySQL user whose username contains unprintable characters?
could it be a CR (\r) or a CRLF (\r\n) and not just a new line, and od or mysql is silently stripping the CR when you spit out the raw?

comment How can I drop a MySQL user whose username contains unprintable characters?
Spun up a test mysql instance; I just added and removed a user with that exact name (with and without a newline at the end) without issue. doesn't help your issue i know, but i'm wondering if something else is afoot.

comment Allowing nagios plugin check_dhcp to work without setuid root
If only Nagios and its child projects could be relieved of their crappy old development methodologies, this would be pretty trivial to fix in a pull request, checking for the specific capability rather than just root or the setuid flag.
