comment rsync not removing single quotes around array of strings --filter list
I was able to get it to work by just removing the single-quotes from the line which adds the component to the filter line; this is the second change you suggested.

comment Port 22 is closed even with Firewall turned off
Your outbound attempts at creating a connection are what is failing and could be better addressed on SuperUser; I've flagged it to be moved there.

comment Port 22 is closed even with Firewall turned off
A TCP connection(which you're trying to establish) always has 4 parts: source IP, destination IP, source port, & destination port. Source IP is always your; it's your address. Destination IP tells the Internet where you're trying to go. Destination port(in this case 22) tells the other system what service you're trying to connect to. Source port tells your system which copy of PuTTY originated the connection; you can have several running and all going to the same box. Source port will usually be random; destination port is usually the same for a given kind of connection.

comment Port 22 is closed even with Firewall turned off
Your web tool is telling you that port 22 inbound(coming to you) is closed. The host support guys are talking about port 22 outbound(going away from you).

Why do you need it to be open?

comment Port 22 is closed even with Firewall turned off
There are three states of ports: OPEN, CLOSED, and STEALTH. OPEN means that something is listening on it and there is a path to it from your web tool; nothing is blocking it. The only difference between that and CLOSED is that nothing is listening on it. STEALTH means that something is blocking the path to it from your web tool, usually a firewall, regardless if it would be otherwise OPEN or CLOSED.

comment mysql cannot start because of init.d folder?
Puppet is not a distro of Linux; it is a configuration change utility. To find out what distro of Linux you're running, type cat /etc/issue and paste the results here.

comment Why isn't fail2ban blocking failures?
/sbin/service is a RH-specific item. Debian might have another similar command, but the fallback that I know is on there is to run /etc/init.d/fail2ban start

comment New portspace for different domains on the same IP
@mailq: "HTTPS having the name based communication during TCP connection setup" is what I meant. I am aware that HTTPS itself has been around for years.

comment New portspace for different domains on the same IP
HTTPS is a very recent development and only somewhat recently made it out of theoretical implementations. I don't think that it is available in any packages by default.

comment “SQL engine 'mysql' not supported”
run yum list available | grep postfix | grep mysql and see if anything looks promising. If not, do the same for yum list available | egrep 'postfix|mysql'.

comment Why am I getting drive critical warnings and how can I fix this?
@JamesAnderson - We really can't tell you "of what". We don't have any access whatsoever(we can't even identify the server, or what disks it has), while you have full access. You are the one who is expected to know what is on there, what those files do(roughly), and why they're there. You are the one that can sort the directories by size and identify any that are growing beyond proportion. You are the one that put things there(directly, or through some daemon), and you are the one that needs to watch their size and appropriately trim them. We not only should not, but CANNOT do that for you.

comment “service mysqld stop” times out (then found out that “mysqld dead but subsys locked”)
Bash has a builtin command kill. This is helpful in case the system is swamped enough that it can't spawn any more processes, then you can still kill rogue processes if you're logged in. Thus, when you run kill(as opposed to /bin/kill), then you're running the builtin. This should explain the difference between running kill and /bin/kill, where you call a specific binary.

I presume that there is no 'install for everyone' option in the Dropbox installer?

comment Seeing a lot of requests into the web server - for random hostnames not my own
There is no way for them to NOT know that your server exists; it has already opened a TCP connection to their system in order for them to send the hostname.

comment Why crontab daily jobs run after 04:00am?
If you use the cron.daily directory that many crontab installations include, then the DST problem shouldn't be a factor; open a man page for cron(8) and search for "daylight".

comment Why crontab daily jobs run after 04:00am?
I've installed quite a few systems(red-hat based, most of them) and whenever I check, they're ALL that way. Kind of makes it hard to believe in a "random" time, even if it is chosen at OS install time.
