What do you mean by "does not work"? What error message do you receive?

How is mail delivered to your inbox? Do you manage the SMTP server or do you know the person who does? Are you able to use mail filtering tools to handle final delivery for you?

comment Running Apache server causing machine to run out of space
As well as removing the log files, did you restart apache? Until you do, the kernel won't be able to free the disk space they occupied.

comment How to rollback network configuration changes done over SSH in case of failure?
@pqnet Absolutely. I have been encouraging my colleagues to do just this, and we have a lot fewer "my long running job died" complaints. We do have a lot of forgotten screen sessions on most of our servers, though...

comment How do I create a VM from an existing FreeBSD 8.2 PreRelease server?
You can check out any commit to the FreeBSD repository, so if you can find which commit corresponds to the 8.2-PRERELEASE you're running, you can grab it and build your own installation media from the source, or build from source on your VM.

comment Force new permissions on files after rsync from seedbox
The --chmod option of rsync may also be of interest, since only root can change the ownership of files on most systems.

comment Do I need to setup my ZFS (using FreeBSD 10) for foreign-language files (e.g. filenames in Japanese/Thai/etc language)?
Could you provide a link to documentation about the limit, please? I haven't been able to find anything definitive in my (admittedly none-too-thorough) searches... Thanks!

comment bash + Is there something like log4j for bash script?
@terdon - I interpreted the question as wanting a logging tool for use in bash scripts. logger is suitable for that, but if the question is specific to logging errors from bash itself, then no - logger won't work, and the question needs to be updated to make it more explicit.
