comment How to check which Apache group I can use for the web server to write?
What do you call "lie" — citing original author's text? :) or suggestion to at least use 1777 instead of 777? :) or finding out creator ownership and using it for "precise access granting"?

comment What is the difference between interactive shells, login shells, non-login shell and their use cases?

comment Unix sort out of memory
RTFM: „… The OOM killer can be completely disabled with the following command. This is not recommended for production environments, because if an out-of-memory condition does present itself, there could be unexpected behavior depending on the available system resources and configuration. … anything from a kernel panic to a hang depending on the resources available to the kernel at the time of the OOM condition. sysctl vm.overcommit_memory=2 echo "vm.overcommit_memory=2" >> /etc/sysctl.conf …” ­— oracle.com/technetwork/articles/servers-storage-dev/…
