comment Most simple way of extracting substring in Unix shell?
Offhand, as far as I remember, it is dependant on the type of quotes you use: single or double quotes. Also might have caveats dependant on the shell used (I myself use tcsh).

comment Assigning a public IP on Windows Server 2008 R2
Sorry for the stupid comment, but these things can get overlooked sometimes: are the NICs connected correctly? ie. NIC for external network should go into your ISP's router modem and NIC for internal to your internal network switch.

comment How to speed up Drupal 7 with remote DB (not DNS resolving)
Thank you for the answer. Since I needed a solution quickly (and you can see the question is rather an old one), I simply accepted that PHP is extremely bad with remote databases and moved the SQL server to Drupal VM. Maybe some other people who experience the same problem will try out your solution and comment/vote here.

comment How to auto chown/chgrp files after FTP upload?
you can do chmod u+s as well, which should set the user, too, when executed on directory. it is referenced also in several places on web, but doesn't actually seem to work when i tested it right now.

comment Permission Denied trying to execute a .conf file.
Yep .conf files on Linux are 99% simple text files that you edit with any Linux text editor, or copy them to windows machine, edit there and copy back.

comment High memory even tho no traffic
OOM issues might also indicate that the web pages use more memory than apache and/or php or whatever platform you are using has configured. In that case you just need to configure the respective system to allow more memory per page serving/script run.
