I have some servers.
I try not to update them.
They are tools, not toys.

The lights are all out.
The servers chanting loud.
Like monks at compline.

comment Cost effective way to host site / VPS / yourself?
If there's a hardware problem, with CoLo you probably have to go there and fix it yourself. You may have to manage your own backups, recovery testing etc too.

comment Finding Webserver Vulnerability
A Google Support Forum Discussion of 13 Dec 2010 mentions RewriteRule . http://84f6a4eef61784b33e4acbd32c8fdd72.com/%{REMOTE_ADDR} and a commenter says the cause was this vulnerability. Unverified but I thought it might be worth knowing about.

If the Apache error message says /var/www/development you can be sure that is where Apache is looking when it receives your request. You can tell Apache where to look by default using the DocumentRoot directive, but there are other directives that can set up other places to look if the URL contains specified path prefixes.

"Is this terminal?" - when Apache sees a .htaccess containing a directive that isn't allowed, it isn't fatal/terminal for Apache - it just logs the error "DirectoryIndex not allowed here", returns a response code 500 to the client web browser and carries on.

Is there a AccessFilename directive in apache2.conf? Did you get Apache to reload it's configuration?
