I'm just a simple IT guy, who does a bit of programming on the side.

Might be a dumb question, but you restarted Apache after changing the configuration, right?

comment Hotplug NIC on openbsd running in KVM
It would be most helpful if you could access the console (video or comm port) when this happens. Without one of those the best you can do is sift through log files.

Use top to determine where you're bottleneck is (probably RAM). Edit a summary of what top says into your original question.

comment How can I change the default gateway?
That works, though it restarts a heck of a lot... and might break applications that are bound to interfaces.

You're either wanting to simply mount that stick to the folder, or use unionfs.

run cpufreq-info on the host OS, it will probably complain that there's no driver available.

comment is there a way to reset a linux machine should the primary disk fail?
1. Why not use RAID to avoid the failure problem? 2. Why not have the system load a RAM disk from the USB Boot device, so that it doesn't need the USB Stick once it's running? 3. Why would the USB drive not be plugged directly into the motherboard or something incredibly secure so that it never comes out with extreme intention?

comment Put Linux server into sleep and wake it up using WOL packets
Couple quick thoughts: 1. Modern hardware "wears" the most from heat cycles caused by turning things on/off. Turning your server on/off constantly will cut it's average life by half or more. 2. Electricity is cheap in most places, you should figure out the actual amount you'd be saving by doing this (I'll bet it's <$3/month, unless you have a horribly inefficient server, in which case you might want to consider using more power-efficient hardware). 3. It's wouldn't be too hard to program a watchdog service that accepts UDP packets to reset it's counter and sleeps the computer when tripped.

comment Unable to access internet if wireless enabled
Your default route is definitely over the wired connection... Are you sure you can't get to the Internet? You are trying more than just a web browser, correct? Are there proxy settings in the browser's configuration? Operating system? Steps you've already taken to resolve the issue?

comment FreeBSD: Remove symlinks in devfs
Right, you're understanding correctly (though ada0 isn't necessarily port0 on the MB as the MB could have a weird layout, I've seen it enough to know better). Using either device name shouldn't make any difference as ZFS looks for a "marker" on the drives and does not rely on the OS presenting the same device name.

comment Best compression of similar files?
tar + lzma seems to work really well for binary blobs. LZMA is built into newer versions of tar too.

comment Is rpm the only file extension for repositories
.rpm is specific to the package manager software, which Red Hat uses, CentOS and other have inherited. Others are free to use it as well, but many other Linux distros use other package managers.
