comment CentOS Adding Hard Disks
Yes unfortunately so, but RAID10 is the ideal setup for a four-drive RAID array for both speed and fault tolerance. Two RAID0 arrays are doubling your already high chances of data loss. Also, unlike RAID5, it can be reliably be run with software RAID without the additional (although some may argue minor) parity calculation overhead. With a hardware controller + BBU it just gets even better as you can increase your write speeds further with write caching.

comment Few requests/sec, but choke Apache and spike CPU
Is the server having to do anything extra in response to the requests? E.g. generate a dynamic 404 page? Is Apache actually the top CPU user? Does the CPU load appear to be I/O bound or is it indeed a CPU bottleneck?

comment PHP fopen fails - does not have permission to open file in write mode
How is PHP being run? CGI, DSO, SuPHP, etc? These will determine the actual user PHP runs as, which is not always the same as the Apache server itself.

comment How can I boost WiFi data transfer rate?
To clarify: 8Mbit = 1MB/s (1mb/s is 1 Mbit). To reiterate what others have said -- you're only going to see significant speed improvements by going with a faster wireless technology (802.11n), hard-wiring, or moving closer to the wireless source (either the device itself or the end unit).

comment OpenVPN client connected, but cannot ping inside VPN address range
When you say they can't ping each other, what interface are you pinging on the host? Public interface, tun gateway address, etc.? I have a feeling the Windows firewall is probably blocking this.

comment Apache VirtualHosts based on host header field
The way I write my Apache configs, explicit definitions come first (higher priority), and wildcard "catch-all" vhosts come last as the lowest priority since they are generic.

comment Apache VirtualHosts based on host header field
@Shane Madden Read it again, and you'll see that Name-based virtual hosting requires ServerName to be set. It was in response to your comment prior to mine. The Vhost for www.mydomain.com should come first, with the wildcard vhost defined last to catch everything else.

comment Apache VirtualHosts based on host header field
Straight from the Apache documentation: If you are using name-based virtual hosts, the ServerName inside a <VirtualHost> section specifies what hostname must appear in the request's Host: header to match this virtual host.

comment How to chroot Apache on CentOS?
Apache forks off as a user-level account, so a root escalation is unlikely unless there is a very serious flaw in the Apache core. In either case, if you are still concerned with this, +1 for the virtualization recommendation.
