comment Will changes to libc.conf affect the rest of my environment?
The likely answer is "Yes, you might break things", but details on the errors you're having and the failures you're seeing are needed first to rule out things.

comment How to check if Nginx + Ruby on Rails web application is down?
Well you have a few problems... starting with 14.14 is a nonexistent version (make sure you have the right Ubuntu version stated). Secondly, there's not really any true way to 'test' the application short of a built in status API that runs with Ruby and maybe a curl check to see the response from that status API. But the app would need developed that way. Status checking is three fold: Is OS Online, Is NGINX Running, and Is Ruby on Rails app running. There's no solution I'm aware of to do all three simultaneously

revised Can I limit the size of the linux file cache?
This isn't necessarily an Ubuntu-specific question and therefore does not need the Ubuntu tag. (They only use Ubuntu, it's not Ubuntu specific, as far as I can tell)

comment Easy command line method to determine specific ARM architecture string?
Right but this will determine the architecture needed for the script's packages. I will test this today, thanks.

comment Easy command line method to determine specific ARM architecture string?
@Costas On ARM setups, uname -m spits out the specific arm board - armv7l for example. It doesn't explicitly say whether it's armel, armhf, or arm64 - which is what I need $(arch) to end up as in order to weed out incompatible OS architectures with.

comment Easy command line method to determine specific ARM architecture string?
@Costas Yes, that's effectively what i'm after, but getting the arch is the tricky part. Since solutions might be distribution and OS-model specific, Debian and Ubuntu are similar and are my target, so solutions that would get the arch out and then usable would be great. (This isn't a pure-programming question either, I just need the command to grab the specific arch - i already have i386, i686, and x86_64 cases based on uname -m, but nothing for arm??... or at least, nothing that identifies armhf, armel, or arm64).
