comment How to increase the size of Linux Partition (EXT4) without loosing data when the swap partition is exactly after it?
ok, so that means that things like "restart from a Live CD and do stuff" are an option, so, yeah, DopeGhoti's approach looks good. (Things are more difficult if you can't restart the machine because, for example, you're running a web server on it that needs to stay available during the whole process.)

Is keeping the machine up during all this part of the game? (Disk sizes and no LVM sound like a desktop machine?)

comment Issues executing program
It's possible that utserver looks for a configuration file in the directory it's started from. Something like "use from current directory, or else from user's home directory, or else hard-coded defaults" sounds reasonable, and maybe the defaults don't have the web interface enabled. The docs should be able to tell you.

comment Why does the debian installer force me to use a username starting with a-z while adduser doesn't enfore this?
Wow, I'm surprised it works at all, seeing how tools like chown let you use numerical user/group ids interchangeably with textual user/group names.

Isn't 6.1 past its EOL? (Meaning, possibly the repositories aren't around anymore?)
