comment Getting SFTP to update Wordpress
Sounds like it might be a permissions issue. Symlinking may not have sufficient rights to allow the copy. That said, WP has update/upgrade functions in its Admin CP - why not use those?

comment Unable to access Windows share from an Ubuntu Desktop
Also, logins on AD can have some funny syntax you need to bear in mind. Sometimes the domain\username has to be used and the slash direction is important.

comment Unable to configure virtualhosts in ubuntu+apache+webmin
Do you have a line in your /etc/apache2/apache2.conf file that runs the include /etc/apache2/sites-enabled command? The include command is path-specific for Webmin to add virtual hosts and for Apache to know to enable and read them.

comment Where did /etc/init.d/dovecot go in 14.04?
Is Dovecot installed? If it were, service status dovecot should return a stopped/waiting status.

comment desktop vs server on a physical server
As Alvar pointed out, you will get the server kernel and options for installing server services (LAMP, mail server, SSH server, etc.) during the server-edition install. This is somewhat easier than installing those packages and services on a standard desktop-edition install.

comment How to get samba serve to follow chmod rules
I'd bet that the /mnt/data point is owned by root as that is typically how fstab entries are parsed unless otherwise set in the entry. If the partition will solely be used as a Samba share point, I might manually create the mount point and use chown to set it to be owned by your Samba master owner and group so that permissions will propagate properly.

comment Using Gufw create rule to reject traffic from specific subnet
From what I've been able to glean from the ufw Wiki page even though the default action is to allow, once you set a block or reject rule, that will override the default rule and requires that you add a specific allow rule at the end of the chain.

comment Using Gufw create rule to reject traffic from specific subnet
Then I believe you need to add an allow rule at the end of the chain to accept connections other than the reject values that precede it. (Notice in the gufw screen that it notes that the rule will be added to the end of the list - the rules are applied in the list order.) So add rules at the end to allow traffic on the ports that have reject arguments - sudo ufw allow 22 would work for ssh, for example.

comment How to get samba serve to follow chmod rules
ext3 should not cause a problem for Samba shares. It appears that you are creating the mount through an fstab entry - you might be having an upstream permissions problem with the mount point settings.

comment Using Gufw create rule to reject traffic from specific subnet
What makes you think the rules aren't working? The log entry you gave shows a block on the source as 74.125.233.85 which isn't related to the 172 subnet you want the blocks for.

Yes, from the live disk on the flash drive.

Actually, we'd need to see the output of ls-l /mnt/data/Protection/Master for the UNIX permissions.

That config looks okay. In a Terminal session, issue sudo ifdown eth0 && sudo ifup eth0 which will restart your networking.
