comment Site not found when accessing by IP
Where are you storing your files? If you were using /var/www before, the default is /var/www/html now.

comment Apache daemon file under init.d is empty
Wow, a non-LTS almost 6 years old release. Why not upgrade your release? at least to an LTS one. There has been 6 years of security and bug fixes to the system and its packages.

comment How to make Apache run as current user
What is the advantage of this, over just adding my own user to the www-data group, specially since we are talking about a development environment?

comment Remove '.php' from url - Nothing works
Do you mean you want /showthread.php?id=XX to auto redirect to /showthread?id=XX? or do you just want /showthread?id=XX to open as if showthread.php?id=XX was called?

comment Error when running script in bash
@FranciscoGallegoSalido -Almost- Everything in your home directory should be yours, and shouldn't require sudo. Make sure you are the owner of the ~/.bash_aliases file. If you ran sudo on it before, then most likely root took ownership. Take ownership back with sudo chmod $USER: ~/.bash_aliases

comment Problem when trying to update package in Ubuntu
@PKumar The post was in Italian(?), so I wasn't 100% sure I understood correctly. But even if I did, this is a duplicate of lots of similar questions. In this case, I find marking it as duplicate is better than posting an answer to it.

comment Is it possible to undo a file rename using Nautilus?
Just an observation that Ctrl+z works in my case (After the name is saved). (Ubuntu 14.10, Nautilus 3.10.1). The Undo functionality even worked after I completely closed Nautilus and re-opened it, and without being inside the directory when the name change happened.

comment Why am I getting the Apache2 Ubuntu Default Page instead of my own index.html page?
When you disabled the default site and restarted apache, it was still showing the default index.html page, or was it showing one from a different virtual host? Can you post the content of one of the misbehaving vhost files? This might make things much easier for us to help.

comment Why am I getting the Apache2 Ubuntu Default Page instead of my own index.html page?
How did you create the virtual hosts? Did you create them by adding files to /etc/apache2/sites-available? If so, did you enable them with sudo a2ensite <your_site_name>? Does the default apache error log file have anything in it? And do you have a ServerAlias or ServerName configured in your virtual host files? If you disable the default site sudo a2dissite 000-default (you can re-enable it with sudo a2ensite 000-default), does it work? Also, it could be that you just forgot to restart apache?

comment Share files with someone over the internet
@zloster It's not only about what the source is. Aside from the fact that the link may become obsolete (yes even on the official Ubuntu documentation), it's about mentioning all the needed info to the users in one place. The links should still be in the answer though (For reference and for extra details in case users need it).

comment Certain characters not rendering on Ubuntu title bar and Mozilla gmail and some other sites
Just a side note, as I can't help you with your problem (sorry). If I'm not mistaken you can upload images, but you cannot embed them as images, just keep them as links. Those Google images don't work for everybody, they give a forbidden error (403).
