comment apache problom unable to connect
Just thought I'd explain the downvote, but this doesn't seem right. It just seems like a bad copy/paste from somewhere. Also, why would you replace the 127.0.0.1 address with the current IP address?

comment Did I corrupt my OS?
@SimonHoare I agree, this is why I haven't added it as an answer myself as well; With Alt+F2, if you run sudo, you won't be able to have a prompt to ask you for the password to actually run the command with root. Instead, with pkexec, it will show a GUI prompt for a password. (I'm not suggesting pkexec because the commands use a graphic environment, instead I'm using it because with Alt+F2, you can't see the "command line feedback"; not sure if I'm making any sense lol).

I don't have a testing environment set up, but would commands run in the Alt+F2 box in this case? (Though I'd presume pkexecwould be a better choice over sudo so they can enter the password). This would be easier over using a live CD.

You will need a live CD to fix that. But just out of curiosity as I have never had your issue, but does the following work? Press Alt+F2, this will open dash in a way to allow to run a command. Try running pkexec mv /var/www/html/home /home in that box. If it works, this would save you lots of time as you won't need to use a live CD anymore.

comment SQLSTATE[28000] [1045] Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) ubuntu
Make sure you put the password in <![CDATA[]], specially if it has special characters like >, &, etc. this is an example of how it should be: <password><![CDATA[my&root>pass]]></password>

comment 14.04 LTS with Apache and SSL as well as non-SSL site problem
Unless you have www.example2.net configured to use port 443 as well, opening https://www.example2.net is trying to open example1 since it's the only one using 443. But apache would give an error to the browser because the certificate's registered domain doesn't match the domain that is accessing the VHost.

comment Blender 2.75, nVidia GTS 450 & CUDA, everything is there, and Blender swears why?
If I understood the post correctly, you have installed the Nvidia drivers directly from Nvidia's site. And now your problem is that Ubuntu is showing you both version. If that's the case, then you have done a bad thing. You shouldn't download and install the drivers directly unless you really really know what you are doing. Instead you can use this ppa for a more updated drivers: launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa Check out this answer for little more details: askubuntu.com/a/61433
