comment Connecting to MySQL from PHP is extremely slow
@Simon Not a clue without looking, but first step to debug would be to try to connect to both the IPv6 loopback and the IPv4 loopback directly using the explicit addresses to verify that MySQL is actually listening and connectable on both stacks, and debugging from there.

comment PHP unlink() deleting file user has no permission to
@JamesBertschik Well you can wait for it to be moved - it requires 5 passing users to vote to move it to SF - or a quicker solution would just be to delete this question, which you should be able to do as you have no answers yet (you should have a "delete" link just under where the tags are displayed at the bottom of the body of your question) and just copy/paste it into a new question on SF. If you don't want to do this you can flag it for moderator attention and ask them to migrate it for you - but I would just delete and create a new one over there.

comment PHP unlink() deleting file user has no permission to
One important gotcha here (although I'm not sure it applies given the facts above) is that if you change security group memberships, the implied alteration of permissions does not take effect until the user logs off and logs on again. When running a service as a user that is also allowed to log on interactively, I'm not sure how this works - it may be that restarting the service will effect the permissions changes, and it may be that you'd need to reboot the whole system. One thing I'm fairly certain of though is that an interactive log off/on will not affect the service's behaviour.

comment How to prevent hackers attacking SQL Server 2008 R2?
@nonintanon Yes, but do you really need to allow those people to connect directly to you SQL Server? Normally you'd have an application in front of the database that the users are connecting to, and only the application talks to the database itself - so the app server(s) are the only IPs that need to be white-listed.

comment How to prevent hackers attacking SQL Server 2008 R2?
@nonintanon You should use a firewall to only allow white-listed IPs and reject or (I prefer) silently discard everything else. That's pretty much essential for any public-facing, private web services. Do things like disabling ICMP echo will actually reduce instances of this - many script kiddies will start with a ping and if they get nothing back they'll move on.

comment SBS2003 Server Performance Report email gets corrupted
Looking good so far, no bad emails in the last couple of weeks. I think this is definitely the right answer.
