comment What are the differences between sudo, su, visudo, chroot, and gksu?
almost confusingly, on ubuntu, visudo uses nano. I find an easy way to remember which is which is 'su' = switch user (to root - yes, you can use it to switch to other users too), 'sudo' = switch user to root and do, and chroot as 'change root'. Not entirely accurate but close enough to remember.

comment I need to install my sql server 5.1 where there is no internet connection
Why are you using rpm packages in ubuntu? Or Tar? Where did you get the tar file from? If its a source package you'd need to compile it

comment Heavy HD activity on memory issue
lighter window manager - say openbox or lxde. I'm really starting to think the hard drive is reacting badly to loads tho. I'll need to try this on one of my ubuntu systems as a comparison.

comment How do I install remastersys?
remastersys was never official, but it generally worked pretty well. So, i suppose it was 'never supported' by ubuntu. It does still seem to work and the dev seems to want to sort out people who think its dead. Inaccurate as such, but i'll let it pass cause i've learnt of a new tool ;p

comment Why do I get a 403 error when accessing my apache server?
Lets look at the bigger picture here - is he running static sites? He is running a php script, and that would indicate, no, he is running dynamic content through a PHP script. How do PHP scripts run? They need to be executed. What user executes files from PHP? I'm guessing www-data. The top voted answer to the question i referenced agree. You don't. citation needed xkcd.com/285 .

comment Why do I get a 403 error when accessing my apache server?
I covered that and better permissions settings in my answer - the executable bit is for scripts to run - which as i recall, are run by www-data. 755 is what many scripts recommend, and came to mind. "the exact permissions level would depend on your setup" is a VERY important point here.

comment Double audio cd ripping weirdness
Its a bit of a guess to why, but i think what the software is doing is grabbing the tags for both cds, and bizzarely, ignoring the discnumber tag

comment Xchat IRC , two nicks
Nope, you can /msg nickserv identify each. I wonder if you could, alternately set up two profiles with different per profile info instead...

comment How to get XChat to automatically “ghost” the old “session” on provider-forced reconnect?
Which is what the answer says. Added a screenshot for clarity. The trick is really in getting multiple connect commands to ghost and change name at once.

set the second nick as your first alternate nick, naturally. First nick will fail, second nick will connect
