comment foolproof way to detect if java process is running
Are you stuck on SL 3? Any chance of using, say... SL 7? This is one of the precise problems that systemd was developed to solve.

comment How to check how long a process has been running?
@AsfandYarQazi That's a relatively new option, starting in procps-ng-3.3.0, after this answer was written. Useful, though!

comment What does “are you root?” mean?
@reirab You're quoting from the part where I'm giving an explanation of what "as root" means from a simplified user's point of view.

comment Can't start mysqld (mariadb) on Fedora, if put a backup into /var/lib/mysql
Is that the only error or warning you see with journalctl? After restoring your backup, did you set file contexts correctly? (Try running touch /.autorelabel and rebooting.)

comment how can I configure Apache so that PHP scripts are run with permissions of the owner of the script?
1. Apache has to at least start as root to bind to port 80, in the absence of other fancy configuration. It can do some basic startup tasks and the drop privs. 2. There are actually a number of ways this can be done which are arguably better than the setuid script approach.

comment How to conect wi-fi network without using GUI?
That is not clear from the question at all. Additionally, Fedora is the upstream for RHEL, but is not RHEL.

comment Creating an symbolic link in /bin automatically creates a second link in /usr/bin and the which command chooses /usr/bin
To be clear, it didn't create a second symlink. You're just looking at the same symlink from a different direction.

comment Creating an symbolic link in /bin automatically creates a second link in /usr/bin and the which command chooses /usr/bin
The answer below is correct. But once that is cleared up, I'm still unclear: do you have a specific problem this was causing? The two names clearly refer to the same thing.

comment Why root is not constrained by pam
@sebelk Looks like this was backported into RHEL6 in 2013. There's a patch there you could use elsewhere.
