On daily basis I deploy, maintain and support one of the largest CDNs in the world. I enjoy working on projects involving automation, monitoring, analysing and tweaking *nix system performance, troubleshooting networks, tinkering with virtualisation, etc.

comment How do I change permission back to where it was?
Just the way it is worded. I don't have to guess. Don't like the wording - edit. Smells like being bored.

comment Does using 2 OSs affect CPU speed?
How about Intel speedstep and similar power saving technologies? I'm afraid your statement isn't correct as it is.

comment How can I clean my software caches from the command line?
Software cache is a rather non-specific term to be honest - I'm aware what that command does :) Just curious - why do you feel you need to manage this manually or with the help of some tweak package?

comment Iptables on Ubuntu Server does not open ports
The PREROUTING rule I listed earlier handles incoming traffic from external hosts. Locally generated traffic does not pass the PREROUTING table and needs a rule in the OUTPUT table. I've updated my answer (just added one more rule) and that should handle both external incoming and locally generated traffic.

comment Is there a way I can transfer all my web sites on localhost to a new computer?
Just to prove the point about the lack of research: stackoverflow.com/questions/3982299/…

Well, I did assume your familiarity with basic management of the OS you're using. Also, your question doesn't show any prior research. You can indeed use mysqldump to create a dump of all your databases that would allow you restore it fully, including the privilege and account information, so what you're stating is incorrect. The process is actually described, the implementation of it isn't. It looks like you consider somebody writing the script for you (since you're after the "exactly how" instructions") as the answer which is cute but I think I'll have to pass on your offer. Good luck.

comment Two NICs Ubuntu Server 12.04
Hi James, I was suspecting that this was the case after finding the information that it's been migrated. BTW: have you tried testing your NIC with ethtool -t?
