comment Malware : Identifying & Cleaning Malware on a LAMP site
You can never be totally sure. After your site has been hacked, the only way to be sure is to totally nuke the server. Sorry, but if I can run a php file I could have started a server listening on a different port, possibly SSH'ed out using my evil script which can tunnel connections back in etc.. If you're mildly paranoid, this is the only sensible option.

comment Denying access for specific host to specific database on mysql
It worked perfectly, thanks. It'd be handy to know if/when the test server is trying to access the database - I had a quick look in the log but this isn't showing... any ideas where to look?

Is it safe to just put stuff directly into that table?

Thanks, I downloaded and installed Symantec_Class_3_EV_SSL_CA_G3.crt which fixed it! :)

* CAfile: /etc/pki/ca-trust/source/anchors/VeriSign-Class-3-Public-Primary-Certification-A‌​uthority-G3.pem - it uses it, but I still get the same error. Does this suggest it's curl having the problem rather than a root ca bundle problem?

comment How to update cURL CA bundle on RedHat?
It's questionable how sensible it is to get your ca bundle via HTTP. You need to trust that ca bundle!

comment MySQL simple replication problem: 'show master status' produces 'Empty set'?
Setting /var/log to be recursively owned and with a group of mysql is going to break a linux system fairly badly. I strongly advise people not to do this. Instead, run that specifically on the log file which mysql is trying to write to, and if it's not there touch it first.

comment Robocopy silently missing files
I'm not sure this is the best solution, but I long since stopped working at that company. This however does seem like the best solution and had the most upvotes so I've ticked it.
