This assumes the user can write to the target directory.

comment Why VNC performance seems to have dropped over the years?
It's a conspiracy. In 2000 a 4Mbps ADSL could blindingly fast load simple static pages, today it barely functions for these, and appears to be useless for anything more advanced.

comment Command substitution in Shell Script
Note the typing mistake on the first line of the script - /usr/bin is not a valid interpreter. Try #!/bin/bash

comment Why does creating a ZPool result in this error?
The answer hints that something may be locking one or more of the devices. Are you able to use the devices in any other way? Have you checked whether lvm THINKS it owns some of the devices?

comment AIX equivalent of Solaris' iostat -E
@gilles The Rosetta stone doesn't help. (Geez this is old, sorely lacking some updates) It gives some broad approximate equivalents, but for a specific detail such as this it doesn't have the answer. As per the referred man page the -b option produces disk utilization statistics, I am looking for IO / SCSI error statistics.

comment Is it possible to define a command in bash?
Even if this COULD work it should not go into /usr/local/bin as it is specific to the one user.

comment Difference between sdX and vdX
Stuff? You couldn't think of "something" or "the requested IO operation". Apology not accepted. ;)

comment Nginx loadbalancing between PHP-FPM and Apache
The included sample nginx.conf includes different settigns for apache than it does for FastCGI ... I don't know nginx well enough but these looks to me like I could just use the FastCGI settings for both?

comment Nginx loadbalancing between PHP-FPM and Apache
The targeted applications are Joomla and Wordpress. I have checked and many people do successfully run these through PHP-FPM and of course the default Apache, and yes it is being tested.
