comment Cannot Install VMware Tools in 15.10 VM, due to Easy Install being in progress
@CharlesGreen that's because you didn't remove the floppy disk image - it's an fd image that does easy install - this is why I stated to remove all CD and Floppy images from the VM settings in step #3 here - to REMOVE Easy Install.

comment How to configure Apache on Ubuntu 14.04 if Nginx is already installed
This is the VERY basic explanation of what's going on; it would help if you gave an actual solution or method to fix this, rather than just say what the conflict is.

comment How to configure Apache on Ubuntu 14.04 if Nginx is already installed
Out Of The Box Installations of both Apache and nginx autodefault to Port 80 for "Out Of The Box" functionality. There's no way around it - whether Apache or Nginx is installed first, you have to shut one off for apt-get to work right and configure the thing, then change one to be on a different port and start the other one. Otherwise you get fail to configure issues.

As an nginx expert, this is the way to go about it, temporarily stop nginx, install Apache, change Apache to be on a different port, start nginx. :)

comment OpenVPN - Can not Connect to Server (Unrecognized option or missing parameter(s))
@M.Reyes "Compiler Issues" is vague; but the problem is you're stuck needing a newer version of the openvpn client, likely. Especially if they are enforcing TLS 1.2

@John your sources.list is missing critical repositories, that without you will NEVER be able to install software. Read my answer.

comment Apt not installing most known packages
@John include your /etc/apt/sources.list file contents as an edit here, I think that there's something missing in your sources but need to see the list first.

comment Apt not installing most known packages
Stupid question, but did you run sudo apt-get update yet to refresh the list of dependencies and packages and such? Did you also then do sudo apt-get upgrade to install all the updates available?

comment Ubuntu 15.10 can ping IP and host name from terminal but not connect in browser
What's the exact error message, "Name Not Resolved", etc.? What does nslookup prod-vnt01.maponics.local return?

comment How to edit Apache's directory listing to open in a new tab
The autoindex functionality has no ability to be configured to open a link in a new page; this does not exist in built-in autoindex functions, I believe.

comment Ubuntu 15.10 can ping IP and host name from terminal but not connect in browser
What's your real issue here? Your computer can "ping" things, which is great, but if you're getting a "Name Not Resolved" then either the web browser doesn't work with /etc/hosts (if /etc/hosts has a hardcoded hostname -> IP item in there), or your DNS servers, assigned domain, and search domains are NOT configured right (not using the internal DNS resolver, not setting the internal domain correctly to the domain in use by your workplace, etc.). We basically need a lot more information than is provided here.

comment Is there Ubuntu's analogue of snapshot.debian.org?
This does not work if the user cleans up their system frequently with sudo apt-get clean; the repositories don't keep old versions around very long.

comment How to know that my ubuntu system is clear from bad file?
The tried and true Nuke It From Orbit approach comes to mind, mainly because if you believe you are infected you should get rid of the infection completely because of subsequent secondary infects caused by the first breach and such (no real way to know what was affected)...

comment NO_PUBKEY 6AF0E1940624A220
@mycrowsoft The approach to fixing remains the same, you just need to replace the key ID. The approach for fixing however remains the same regardless of the key id.. Use option 2 on the potential duplicate. Just replace the key id with the one referenced in your error.

This is not a guarantee however - it is still possible to have a backdoor opened and not detected by ClamAV

comment Update PHP 5.3.2 to 5.3.3 or 5.4 on Ubuntu 10.04
@dschinn1001 actually it is fairly important; an EOL release has zero support, and we don't provide support for EOL releases; at least, we don't provide support on questions asked after the release goes EOL. As well, PHP 7 is new, and doesn't build sanely really for Lucid, which is quite old (almost 6 years old)

comment Update PHP 5.3.2 to 5.3.3 or 5.4 on Ubuntu 10.04
Ubuntu 10.04 is past End Of Life. It went End of Life on April 30, 2015. Being that it is End of Life, it is offtopic. To get continued support, you may wish to upgrade to AT LEAST 12.04.
