When I'm not bicycling, I'm a Linux SysAdmin. I'm on the board of my local bicycle advocacy group.

Bikes are my primary transportation. A 2009 Surly Long Haul Trucker, set up as a commuter and a 2012 Trek Ion CX. I also take the bus, but do not own a car.

comment How to integrate spamassassin to work with squirrelmail?
That plugin seems to be for configuring SpamAssassin in squirrelmail. You need to configure postfix to filter through spamassassin, clamav and/or amavis. Or maybe configure postfix to route email for delivery to procmail and have procmail filter through spamassassin.

comment How to automate a java service to start if server restarts
The best way to handle this is just like all the other services on your system are handled. If it's CentOS 7, then a systemd file; if it's CentOS 6 or lower, then an init script.

comment Accidentally revoked all puppetmaster certs
Does puppet agent --test work? It's likely they're just getting the cached puppet config.

comment Rackspace Ubuntu 12.04 apache2 causing Out of memory
/usr/bin/host really shouldn't ever run for 7 hours. I strongly suspect that your system has been compromised and that the attackers are using the /usr/bin/host command-line to disguise their processes. I'd bet dollars to donuts that if you run netstat you'll see IRC connections.

comment Reapply a template at different points with different variable values
To be clear, you're really trying to add to "plugins" and add additional lines to a single file, not to re-use the same template with different files and different variables?

comment Where is $BASH_ENV usually set?
You've verified that /etc/bashrc and /etc/profile.d/* are identical? ~/.bash_login? /etc/pam.d/*? /etc/security/pam_env.conf?

comment Where is $BASH_ENV usually set?
Is /etc/passwd identical on both servers? If bash is called as "/bin/sh" instead of "/bin/bash" it won't read any bashrc files (only profile files).

comment How do I install the main repositories for RHEL6
The loaded plugins should include rhnplugin. Is that not installed? Is it not enabled? Is it broken in some way?

comment How to write a path with dots in sshd_config
You tried ChrootDirectory "/var/www/ftp.user" (putting quotes around the argument)? Then the dot isn't the problem. "All components of the pathname must be root-owned directories that are not writable by any other user or group." means that the ftp.user directory can't be writable the user 'ftpuser' or any other user that isn't root.

comment Notified when a file controlled by puppet is going to be changed by yum
This is lovely. I sure wish it knew to ignore %config(noreplace) stuff, though, since those aren't actually going to be overwritten.

You're dropping 0.002% of incoming packets. Why are you worrying about it?

comment Access to the site without a port
"www.domain.com" is equivalent to "www.domain.com:80". 80 is the default port for HTTP. If you have another process already using port 80, you need either a separate IP address or a different port. Or you need to configure apache to proxy...
