comment “sudo: no tty present” for munin plugin using password-less sudo
Munin already runs a bunch of plugins as root. I'm not suggesting running all of munin as root, but munin allows you to specify which user each plugin runs as.

Is there a reason you don't just run the plugin as root?

comment Are Apache logs needed when Piwik is being used
Exactly this - logs aren't just to count visitors, they're there to help you support the server.

comment Have you noticed performance gains by compiling Apache and MySQL?
I'm not sure in the context of the faq it is a legitimate question, it's too open ended. Someone might say yes, another person might say no. It's verging on a discussion about the benefits of rolling your own vs. distribution. Just my 2c.

Welcome to ServerFault. Unfortunately, your question is probably going to be closed, because it relates to computers in a home setting, and hence is offtopic. Please check out the faq

comment Ubuntu 12.04, after reboot, ping but don't have any service up ( ssh / apache )
At first I thought the /var/lock thing was a possible error, but it looks like a known issue with rescue mode - answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rescue/+question/185645

What did you do between the last reboot, and this reboot (i.e. what got installed or changed)?

comment I've accidently removed sudo and yum from my linux server
I don't use Centos, that was the first link I found (which is why I didn't paste it as an answer), I think a section near the bottom tells you how to get Centos back on the box. But it might be easier to restore from your most recent backup.

Oh, and if you've removed sudo and don't know the root password or su isn't configured, you'll need to boot the image into maintenance mode somehow. You might just consider restoring from backup.

It's likely you typed 'sudo yum remove sudo yum remove php ....' - i.e. classic case of double pasting. Not sure I know how to get them back though.
