comment Snow Leopard Hangs when Using OpenLDAP on Linux for Authentication
I'm not on that anymore, but yes, it may be that "no root squash" is mandatory for not locking up when using Macs with NFS. Version, I'm not so sure.

comment Is there any way I can administer a Mac OS X Server 10.6 from a client running Mac OS X 10.4 or 10.5?
Not quite the same style as the Mac server manager tool, but in that case that's probably the best you're gonna get. Voted up.

comment accidently ran “chown www-data:www-data / -R” as root
@David: There definitely is no default root password on OS X, and setting one is mostly a mistake, IMO. There's almost always another, better way. The problem is that Macs are not too secure to begin with; I expect to see a lot of 'fun' once they have a larger install base to make RKs, Virii, Botnet clients &c profitable.

comment accidently ran “chown www-data:www-data / -R” as root
On Ubuntu, it's especially important to do the same with sudo. I don't think that a root password is even set by default? By the way, I'd really recommend actually using sudo instead of root shells. The half-second it takes to type sudo normally stops mistakes like that in the tracks. Just working in a root shell is easier to miss...

comment Backup HDD trouble
Backing up live databases can take a very long time because of this. If is important to you to have quick-executing backups (and I can certainly see the business case), you might want to get into fine-tuning binary logging and replicating the binary log to "somewhere else" and only run "real" backups from the live DB when it's less busy. Drawback is slower restores because the DB has to execute the log to restore later transactions than the last full backup. dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/binary-log.html
