comment service vs. systemctl scripts — which to use
Debian user, so can't answer for sure, but service foo start in debian works whether your init system is systemd or sysvinit or upstart; systemctl would likely not work if systemd isn't PID1.

comment symlink /home/username/Documenten tot 2nd partition?
Actually, I suspect your problem is the initial period -- ./home/nel/Documenten starts from the current directory rather than the filesystem root.

comment Nginx Static Build - Run as root with a non-root user
That sounds like the absolute opposite of what most people want their webserver to do..

@john, if the answer worked, please accept it as valid. It's the polite thing to do.

Have you reloaded/restarted apache after each config stage? Enabled debugging? What do the logs tell you?

comment Hiding Your IP on Linux
A quick glance at RHIP's site leaves me with the distinct impression that it's a scaremongering bullshit to tempt easily frightened idiots into spending money. Especially since at least two of their claims are not how the internet works.

comment Why does the debian installer force me to use a username starting with a-z while adduser doesn't enfore this?
Why does it have to be numerical?

comment What is my sudo password?
@Kyrias in debian since at least version 5.0 (Lenny), the sudo group has sudo permissions by default.

comment Chrome does not open Https websites
Your HTTPS proxy inserts its own certificate. Some firewalls do this in order to perform layer-7 scans on HTTPS traffic. Chrome rejects bad certificates like that out of hand, Safari just warns.

@OlivierDulac Are we the only two people in this question who aren't overthinking the question?

comment Merging folders with mv?
That's interesting but only vaguely relevant to the topic and not even remotely what the user asked about.

comment Execute a file if a command is not found
Which is why I immediately mentioned that this is not a terribly good idea.

comment Execute a file if a command is not found
You can append ./ to your PATH environment variable, but that's not a default for several very good reasons.

comment Is it bad to have too many Kernel modules?
Note that in general it tends to be safer to have a module you don't need than it is to decide to "streamline" your kernel build only to find out after a reboot that you forgot a driver that it turns out you did need...

comment Determine if zfs is the actual filesystem
Concur. Voting to close for now; edit this with the confusing output and I'll cheerfully support a reopen request.

comment File manager that shows bit rate for mp3 files
Not sure why this should be closed -- he's asking about the presence of a specific feature rather than the relative merits of one program or another.

comment Switching from LMDE to debian testing + LMDE
No, from what I can see Mint is a hodgepodge of debian and ubuntu packages slightly reconfigured and crammed together in a way they hope won't break too many things in stuff their target area cares about. I stand by my advice.

comment Switching from LMDE to debian testing + LMDE
I recommend against this unless you really, really, really know what you're doing. Mixing distribution flavors is a tricky business to begin with, and Testing is where debian puts stuff when they think they've gotten most of the obvious bugs out and are ready to see how to integrate it with the rest of the debian packages. Intercompatibility with other distros is an afterthought at best.
