comment AiX topas snapshot to web
Note the apache in your PHP script output. The script is not run as root -- which is good, but may affect the way topas works. Try sudo -u apache bash myscript.sh for comparison (if sudo is available to you).

comment Monitor via SSH and execute local script upon change detection
This sounds very complicated. Which problem are you trying to solve? For a Linux dev environment with a shared folder, many people like to use Vagrant, for example.

comment Skype window doesn't show on Debian 7.0 with Openbox
Sometimes these issues can be solved by running the program again, it might become visible (i.e. un-minimized) then... no idea if this works with Skype.

@bshacklett W.r.t logs, I'd have a closer look at logstash. The store can be fed logs directly from Log4j, but the logstash agent can also monitor log files

comment How can I run a shell script as a daemon under Redhat?
@bshacklett you can examine any init script's (any shell script's actually) function by running it explicitly with bash -vx, ie. bash -vx /etc/init.d/script start.
