comment Using %v in Apache LogFormat definition matches ServerName instead of specific vhost requested
...which is exactly what %V does. Logs the hostname of the virtual server which handled the request. The useCanonicalName option lets you control wether you want the server's opinion of it's name, or the client's opinion of the name. %{Host}i is always the client's opinion, so %V is another way to do that, plus a way to do what %{host}i cannot do.

comment How to chroot VirtualHosts on a Apache server?
chroot()'ing is a big can of worms. (I'm not saying don't do it, just that it's a lot of effort.) So the warnings you've shown are just the first hurdle. But, one hurdle at a time... Are you sure that /usr/local/www/apache22/data/test-1 exists?

...and check that "system wide control panel" carefully (it's logs). That would a web-exposed front end to processes running on the system. It could have a vulnerability that leads to processes running as that user, which nefarious persons could try to manipulate to send mail.

comment User account automatically filling up with dead.letter file
ok. dead.letter holds outgoing attempted messages that fail. So your deviant dead.letter file is mail originating on this machine that isn't making it off of the box. Have you check the process table for anything running as this user? ...and does your cron-or-similiar service log anywhere? ...any logs about cron jobs for this user?

comment Apache Log Rotation
Also, the on some Linux flavors (e.g., Ubuntu for sure) the Apache package brings its own config file for logrotate's config directory. It has a wildcard rule that basically says, "rotate any/all of my logs". So as you add more apache processes, or vhosts, etc, it's just that one log rotate rule. And it uses logrotate's sharedscripts option so it's just one Apache "graceful" signal after logrotate moves all the files.

comment SFTP Access Restricted with new Sudo Root User
Sounds to me like you should be configuring the new user to be chroot'd into their home directory. Your question is how to keep the user who SFTP's via filezilla from seeing everything on your box, right?

comment Cisco “copy startup-config tftp” results in a 0 byte file on the server?
I think it's a problem with the path the cisco TFTP client is requesting to write to. Works from other TFTP clients . . .

Interesting I'm getting down voted for suggesting the problem might with the path he's specifying on the Cisco's TFTP command. OP states the TFTP server works from other TFTP clients. People are upvoting the answer that misses this aspect of OP's description? Curiouser and curiouser.

comment How to DISable display sleep on Dell PowerEdge R310
breadcrumbs for future readers with Ubuntu Lucid (10.04): the kernel param is easily added to the GRUB bootloader configuration. Just set the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX to "consoleblank=0" in /etc/default/grub, then run 'update-grub' (as root) to have it adjust your Grub bootloader menu items.

comment How to DISable display sleep on Dell PowerEdge R310
These systems do not have X11 installed; all headless (well, KVM switch plugged into them) rack-mounted servers. Any idea how X11 manipulates DPMS? ...maybe there's a command or another package I can install to get/set the DPMS options?
