comment SSD Power OFF duration
SSDs are non-volatile storage. They should retain their contents indefinitely, without power. I'm sure there are limits, but for the purposes of a typical human life (no cryo-freezing or time-travel), they're supposed to retain the data "forever".

comment Why are my routes being removed/replaced when connected to vpn?
What client software you use connect, and what your settings for it are, are very relevant.

Unless your time is completely worthless, it's probably worth it to actually get a proper cable tester. When solving problems, I work my way from the base up. You can goof with software settings until the end of time, if your hardware's faulty, it can take a long time to confirm it. Directly testing the thing can help you pin-point the issue a lot faster. But, I guess other approaches could work. Maybe I don't understand your situation.

comment how to shut down a server from the webinterface
What's the operating system? You're using bash, so Linux? OSX? BSD? I'd agrue controlling OS-level stuff from a webui is never a best or secure practice, but that's not to say I wouldn't ever do it. You'll have to weigh the risks and try to mitigate them. You may have to find a completely different approach.
