I'm a unix sysadmin, working as a consultant at Init AB (www.init.se).

Previous jobs include sysadmin in charge of security related systems at a large bank, and mail servers at a largish ISP, including handling abuse and spam issues.

comment How to stop emacs server
I was wrong at first; it doesn't start the server if it isn't running already, it just restarts it if it is.

comment What is logcheck, and why is it consuming 100% CPU out of the blue?
Also, I really meant it that your boss should let you get the training to do sysadmin work. It's really not fair to you to put you in a situation to manage servers and not give you access to the tools you need. I would certainly not be a good web designer because that's not what I'm trained in and my being a good sysadmin wouldn't help there. This is the same situation, just from the other side.

@YujiTomita Yes - the policy is that it's a question about how to manage systems in a professional capacity. A professional sysadmin should know how to debug this. It's not a stupid question, it's just one that's not on-topic at ServerFault. I will vote to transfer it to Unix & Linux instead which doesn't have that restriction - I was out of votes yesterday so I couldn't do it then.

@YujiTomita At the risk of coming across as rude - if you don't know how to do basic debugging of a runaway process, you should either contact a sysadmin within your company to ask for help, or hire a consultant. Or, at the very least, your boss should pay for the training necessary for you to work as a sysadmin in addition to your development duties.

comment Unable to connect FTP: 530 Login incorrect
If you get 530 Login incorrect, that means that you did connect. You just weren't allowed to login with the user/password combination you used. Ask the person/s in charge of the server to check their logs to see what went wrong.
