comment Bad Vista to 7 upgrade - how to recover?
@Dave - if you've done it hundreds of times, you probably do this professionally for a company with many systems, in a controlled situation, and have tested the upgrade process thoroughly. This problem is not "controlled".

comment Bad Vista to 7 upgrade - how to recover?
Reinstall and forget about restoring those programs! Next time, make an image of the complete disk before doing this, so you can go back. Upgrading Windows is asking for trouble. And make backups of install programs plus registration! Take this as a lesson for next time.

Does this help? Providing Openvpn of course, but you don give any details about your setup! openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/miscellaneous/…

comment Strangely slow internet on MacBook Air running OS X Yosemite
Not the 90s. These commands are from the 60s... ;-) We probably have to wait for 10.10.4 to get this fixed by a system update.

comment Something “kills” my Apache-PHP-Processes after some time
Practical approach: design a script that assumes the process will be killed, so make it fail proof. And you can wait two days and give this question a 50 point bonus.

comment Something “kills” my Apache-PHP-Processes after some time
I remember a problem we had with a local test webserver that restarted every month and we had no idea what could cause it. It turned out to be a problematic UPS that did a test and cut off power, and we didn't monitor the UPS properly. Your Apache keeps running, but can it be that something else stops this script, maybe even restarts Apache, like a Monit script? If you manually restart Apache, will that have the same results? In that case, the PID will change, and you should be able to see that.

comment Something “kills” my Apache-PHP-Processes after some time
So if you start 6 processes at the same time, it fails. When you start 6 processes over time, at one point one will fail. What happens when you start 10 or 20 processes over time? What happens with the server? Do other pages open normally? Try top or htop for feedback on memory use. What happens if you run one process for a long time? Isn't this a normal server timeout? Why don't you put these long-running scripts in a queue and run them as cron script?
