revised Does Apache need firewall access for code server requests?
Clarification based on a further explanation of the question, which I had misunderstood.

comment Does Apache need firewall access for code server requests?
@Duncan Not for dumdums; for people who don't have the background in systems administrations. I don't say that I'm a dumdum for not having a deep knowledge of the engine of a train. And I'd say that by posting in the wrong place, you wasted both your time and ours - we simply did not understand how the question you were trying to ask even needed asking, so we answered what we thought you were asking. Again, I am saying nothing about your level of intelligence (or my own) - simply that we did not understand one another due to a difference in experience.

comment Does Apache need firewall access for code server requests?
I completely misunderstood your question - it never occurred to me that you were actually wondering if you needed to open incoming access to port 80. As I wrote, you need to make sure that the machine on which the script runs does not have a firewall blocking the access to the SQL server.

comment Does Apache need firewall access for code server requests?
@Duncan To most of the people frequenting Server Fault, it actually is obvious - like "do I need the door to that room to be unlocked in order for me to open it and pass through it" obvious. This is why the question was moved to Super User, which is a more appropriate site for this.

comment How come the machine name shows up in the email header?
RFC5321: As discussed in Section 6.4, a relay SMTP has no need to inspect or act upon the header section or body of the message data and MUST NOT do so except to add its own "Received:" header field

comment How come the machine name shows up in the email header?
Gmail has internal logs giving them the ability to trace messages while munging the headers. And it still causes problems for other sysadmins when their users misbehave. Munging information like that breaks the RFCs and should be discouraged. (Speaking as a sysadmin who started managing email nearly 20 years ago...)

comment How come the machine name shows up in the email header?
Why should it strip out information that can be used to e.g. find spammers, figure out deliverability problems or otherwise be of use to sysadmins?

comment OS X not resolving hostnames for SSH/HTTP
Check serverfault.com/questions/578952/… - it may be the same issue, that the Mac tries IPv6 which isn't resolvable.

comment Convincingly “breaking” a system for a non technical user
I've used it at work, when people have failed to lock their computers. They have then generally kept programs running, too, and of course the desktop image of those programs don't accept input. Usually I've only needed to do this once per user in order to make them learn to lock their computers.
