comment How to mass add file extension?
Okay, I won't tell you to use spaces, but if you change your mind later try find /PATH/TO/FOLDER -depth -name "* *" -execdir rename 's/ /_/g' "{}" \; (source) which will replace all spaces in files & folders & subfolders for you.

comment What causes SSH problems after rebooting a 14.04 server?
Thanks for this most interesting answer! I'm going to test all this now as I am on a dedicated server (not a VPS) but I had the issue on both types - so long as it was 14.04 and not 12.04. sudo reboot now works perfectly in 12.04 and uptime corresponds to the last time I do it. Very interesting change for 14.04 though.

comment What causes SSH problems after rebooting a 14.04 server?
@Jo-ErlendSchinstad I spent 2 hours today testing this with AWS, DigitalOcean and OVH servers and can reproduce it 100% of the time. 12.04 = ok, 14.04 = no SSH after rebooting. If this were a bug I expect we'd be hearing from many others locked out of their servers! Hope I'm overlooking something but with a fresh install + single SSH login to reboot, there's not much room for human error here. Just tested it now from my 14.04 laptop (in case this was a 12.04 thing) and no change, same result. Really hope to figure this out soon...

comment Can exim be configured to send all emails externally?
Thanks, I have this working finally. Are you using Ubuntu + exim4? I ask because he strings domainlist local_domains or send_to_gateway: do not exist in any of my routers. domains = ! +local_domains does though, and this was the clue I needed. I'll post what worked as a new answer to make it easier for noobs like me to figure it out...

comment Ubuntu Server 14.04 Apache 2.4 TLSv1.2/TLSv1.1 support
I've always found Mozilla's TLS docs to be the best reference when setting this up and I see they use SSLProtocol all -SSLv2 which differs from your config. Also, when visiting your site I get what looks like a 'self-signed' cert so I don't think you can conduct a 3rd party test with? Possible I guess but I would expect them to reject your cert immediately.

comment How do I find out the email address associated with software centre? (12.04)
While not an exact duplicate, I think the answer you want is here. And unless you have purchased applications attached to an email address, it's fine to just start over and create a new account if you need to.
