comment Cant forward port 443 to 8443 without allowing 8443 on ufw
One thing to note: doesn't seem that xinetd adds "X-Forwarded-For" headers, but it does alter the IP. This might be problematic if your destination service needs to know the originating IP.

comment How to serve a wget --mirror'ed directory of files with questionmarks in them
Inbound links will still be broken by this approach, unless the webserver is able to rewrite inbound requests that lack ".html".

comment Can I override my umask using ACLs to make all files created in a given directory world readable?
One thing I've found (perhaps this is the trouble): the facl seems to use the first of (user, group, other) which the current user matches. That is, if you belong to the group for the file, the acl for group will be processed, not the acl for other. The acl should still be inherited if you applied the directory with -d, though....

This trick doesn't seem to work for lighttpd, unfortunately...

"in the encrypted filesystem you would need to update the entire thing at once, as it has no concept of files or directories - it is just a large chunk of data.": I'm pretty sure that's not true. According to the article you link to, ecryptfs is a "Stacked Cryptographic File System", which is distinct from a block-device encryption which it sounds like you're describing. The difference: ecryptfs.sourceforge.net/ecryptfs-faq.html#compare . I've updated the question to provide more detail.
