comment Preprocess packets send to/from interface
@er453r I wrote few proof-of-concept code snippets and a small paper that used this method for a presentation some years ago. Read with caution since there may be many inaccuracies: gatoni.gr/Hijacking_sessions.tar. I will edit the answer if I ever find the time to proof-read and clean-up this tarball.

comment nginx server config with multiple locations does not work
@BrainStone I made a final update to my answer, listing all the options that I know of. If it still doesn't work, you are very welcome to read the fine manuals yourself, wait for other people to reply or experiment on your own. Regarding your "reputation" comment, I'm not doing this for imaginary points but because I tend to finish what I start. Good luck, I hope you solve your server issues soon.

@BrainStone Did you re-install phpMyAdmin after switching to the new configuration and webroot or were you just moving around your phpmyadmin directory since the time you first installed it? If not, do so.

@BrainStone I edited my answer once more in order to demonstrate how to achieve what you want using proxy_pass and different server directives.

@BrainStone You can add a new server directive to listen on a different port and have different webroot pointing to phpmyadmin installation. Then you can create a /phpmyadmin/ location that includes a proxy_pass directive pointing to that new server directive you created that is responsible for serving your phpmyadmin installation.

@BrainStone I have updated my answer. Seems like I fell in one of the nginx configuration pitfalls.

comment How to interact with the concrete file system?
You can generally get away "easily" with direct reads, but the proper handling of direct writes from user-space would be very problematic. It would cause a grave performance hit since you'd have to lock the block device on each write to avoid race conditions and data corruption on concurrent access attempts.

comment Rsync daemon intrepreting parameters as command in rsync.conf
It would help if you described the changes that you performed on /etc/init.d/rsync script.
