comment CentOS 7 x64 and HP Proliant DL360 G5 SCSI Controller compatibility
Because you can't get the driver ... Bear in mind C7 was released just 2 days ago, it takes time for people to get up to speed.

comment How can I understand a Linux server's role?
There really isn't a proper technical solution to this. You should ask the people who ordered the instance what their use of it is.

comment SecAst blocking IP's that fail2ban is not
I think there is a more serious problem, the user Gooroo appears to be an employee of this company and not a customer. They are not being entirely honest with us.

Why, in a test environment, would you not just put the Linux and Windows in VMs on the ESXi ?

That's a different problem than the one here. You should spend some time trying to solve it yourself then if necessary ask another question.

comment Server Down Every 5 Hours? Centos NginxProxy
The reason I asked for relevant messages is that I wanted you to sift through the logs and present them to us in an easy to consume manner. It's also not just the nginx logs you need to look at.

Apparently you are directing people here from your website. That's not quite the same as monitoring serverfault.

comment disable init.d script in systemd
Yeah it's difficult, the tour and help center for each is a good place to start. We also have clarification of certain points on our meta in particular and relevant to you meta.serverfault.com/questions/5586/… .

comment disable init.d script in systemd
We don't consider RPi/raspian to be topical with the meaning of Server Fault. The enthusiast nature of the device is better suited to Unix & Linux, Super User or in the case of non unix related questions Raspberry Pi.

comment How to run HTTPD as specific user(s) and not by nobody?
@JiegoCordoviz This is just a framework containing some ideas on how to do it. There will likely be lots of detail to consider. There is likely lots of documentation you need to read ans research you need to do.

comment Cannot start site on IIS-Express
We don't consider client OS development 'servers' to be topical here. I really do think you'd get a better audience for this on Stack Overflow too after all they use java ans windows 7 much more than sysadmins.
