TecBrat, the frankencoder:

I never expected to be a business owner, but circumstances led me to host and maintain a few websites, so I formed TecBrat.com LLC as a PHP Web Developer and am getting a good start. I'm sure I'll be on SO as much as or more than I was before.

Very little organized training (High School AP class in 1991) but several years of experience hacking together pieces of code.

I greatly appreciate the willingness of the community to help each other improve their coding skills.

Learning JQuery. I am hoping it is a shortcut to learning more JS. So far, I find it helpful and have begun to find extensions / plugins that make it even better.

I joined specifically for PHP programming Q&A, but I found myself much more active on EL&U for a while. I have only my own experience and my highschool education to guide my answers on EL&U.

(I changed the "f" in "franencoder" to lower case because the proper name apparently belongs to a guy name Phillip, and I wouldn't want someone else calling themselves "TecBrat")

Looks like the answer is !$ but I usually hit up-arrow,home and delete the previous command and type the new one.

@CraigSanders I'll have to look up the reverse DNS thing. I have a static IP from RoadRunner Business Class (Brighthouse) reverse DNS for my IP says "rrcs-71-40-149-6.se.biz.rr.com" I tried changing the DocumentRoot of my default from /var/www to DocumentRoot /home/selah/public_html and I got a permission error saying I could not access "/"

I'm such a newb at some of this that some of what you call "cargo-culting" is the only way to move forward. I'll get the knowledge along the way. I was thinking that the hosts file might be local only. Windows uses the same name for their version. I'll put it back to default. The error I had with NameVirtualHost was "mixing * ports and non-* ports with a NameVirtualHost address is not supported" I'll also take a look at the links you gave. Thanks.

Well, I realized I was using the .com TLD but I actually have that set up at my registrar to redirect to the .org version. I went back and edited my /etc/apache2/sites-available/selah file, disabled it, restarted apache, enabled it, restarted apache again, and it still does not work. I just considered the possibility that an install of webmin might be conflicting. I'll uninstall and test again.
