So /1-usr-local-is-for-people-who-know-what-is-what might have been lost had it existed?

comment How to configure postfix with ufw so that my web server can send email but it doesn't act as an open relay?
Postfix does use smtp for this, but it does so as a client. This doesn't require exposing a server port. If you can apt-get or curl without issue, postfix should be able to send mail, at least as far as iptables/ufw is concerned.

comment openldap give group write access to subtree
If you're just starting out, I recommend switching to using groupOfNames rather than groupOfUniqueNames. Most systems that interact with OpenLDAP expect groupOfNames by default, including OpenLDAP itself. This will save you from having to adjust the defaults.

comment Script to remove suspended accounts automatically from Linux server
@MadHatter I probably wouldn't even have answered if this hadn't made me think of yes(1). After this I fear for the trouble I'll get into if something reminds me of tac(1).

@imvikasmunjal I can't be sure, but I figure the reason I was downvoted was my incompetence.

comment Script to remove suspended accounts automatically from Linux server
@Iain It's still late for me, I was being a bit flippant. cpanel is outside of my skill set. If I were being more serious, I'd probably consolidate the script down to a single find.
