comment Cloud Foundry in Ubuntu Openstack
The first url docs.cloudfoundry.com/docs/running/deploying-cf/openstack is redirecting to an unhelpful page. I don't see the same page at docs.cloudfroundry.org. Do you have a good update?

This set of answers is probably obsoleted by the answer for skype 4.3 at askubuntu.com/q/488053/6130

comment How to safely back up the “Private” folder?
Yes, this works well for me also. I just use rsnapshot, which backs up ~/.Private (assuming you back up your home directory), and doesn't back up ~/Private unless you explicitly ask for that (which you shouldn't do!) See the instructions in @floyd's answer for how to confirm you can decrypt them (and practice!). See Bug #455709 ""mounting eCryptfs: -2 No such file or directory”... : Bugs : ecryptfs-utils package : Ubuntu to see why a standard sudo mount -t ecryptfs .Private /mnt/private doesn't work in Ubuntu.

comment How to safely back up the “Private” folder?
@TomBrossman no, it is pretty efficient. The files are individually encrypted.

comment How do I install Ubuntu-Tweak?
I agree with @MestreLion that it helps to have the source available, and to have a Launchpad build the binaries from that source, so this is much better than a binary repo. But there is no independent process for reviewing whatever is uploaded by the ppa owners or whoever gets their credentials, and the fact that it is a ppa rather than part of Ubuntu is evidence that the ppa owners haven't managed (or in some cases they haven't tried) to persuade the Ubuntu developers that the package is worthy. So caution is absolutely advised. The packages can totally screw up or own your machine.

comment ufw port accessible locally but not remotely
How is your server connected to the hosts you're running your clients on? Can you ping it? Is there a firewall in between them?
