comment Why is the “Add” VPN button grey?
Dont forget the command in front to install software. You can also search for network-manager-openvpn-gnome in Ubuntu software center and install from there (might be easier ;-) )

comment removing Windows from linux partition
Yes you can. But why do you feel the need? Formatting from the Windows installation media is not sufficient? And what Pilot6 said :+)

comment Hide files from root in ubuntu
@sarah archive manager ( see askubuntu.com/a/4835/15811 ) But that is not hiding a file. You put it in plain sight. Mind that this will not withstand a formattting of the disk/partition ;-) You should always put them elsewhere (somewhere not accessible by that sudo user)

comment Hide files from root in ubuntu
@sarah hiding is never a good method ( nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Security_through_obscurity ) When you hide something how are you ever going to know if someone saw it? You then also need to police the files... No, don't put them on that system. Heck you are even better off putting them on google drive (password protected of course ;) )

"password" protection is an option if encryption is out.

comment Hide files from root in ubuntu
-anything- on a disk that a user has "sudo" priviliges over is his and can be removed by this user. If you want something protected: encrypt an USB disk, use passwords on the mount and on the directories and leave that disk OUT of the system when you are not using it.

@EmilyShan you need the one your vpn on the other side wants. Start with "openvpn(-gnome)" then "vpnc(-gnome)" .

comment * Restarting web server apache2
You can not learn how to -correctly- handle your own webserver from me or askubuntu. This is required reading httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/misc/tutorials.html and will teach you all you need ;)

comment * Restarting web server apache2
I do not see a problem. The 1st is a -notice- and also offers a solution: " Set the 'ServerName' directive globally to suppress this message". The 2nd is to be expected when there is no website to show. If like this you will need an index.html in your localhost directory

Not our problem. Problems with content of websites needs to be addressed by the website owner.
