comment What do I join when I name my domain with .local
See: serverfault.com/questions/17255/… serverfault.com/questions/47087/… serverfault.com/questions/89644/… for discussion of the usage of .local Quoting Microsoft Using unregistered suffixes is not recommended. Using single label names, such as .local, is not supported.

@Miles Erickson, I suspect you never had computers running OS X on that network either. Bonjuer does weird things where .local is used. Read up on the discussion on some of the questions I linked to.

comment If am using Remote Desktop to login to a remote machine, how does the data for this connection get back into my machine?
Typically you need to open ports on a firewall for incoming connections only, where incoming is relative to the LAN

comment My site seems to be hijacked… but only when visited from another site… how?
Rook, The initial flaw is almost certainly a programming problem. But if the server was setup and the security had been hardened properly, the software flaw would may not have been exploitable. I am also curious how you could be 100% sure the flaw is in software he developed and not in some configuration of the OS or something other tool. If backups where running properly then 'fixing' the problem could easily be accomplished by a quick restore.

comment Got Hacked. Want to understand how
The www-data should NOT own files in your web directory. Anything that www-data can be updated by a poorly written script on the server.

comment How do you block /etc/passwd file
The easiest method, is to simply not allow any other users have access to the system. I am sure I have seen several dups of this question, but they are not coming up in a search. This is the closest I could find. serverfault.com/questions/116281/…
