Felt like a fucing badass just now. My boss sent me a message saying that one of the servers is down and that he can't reach anyone else and he doesn't know how to fix it.

So I sent him a couple of Linux commands to fix the issue and it worked! By his reaction you could tell he was really happy, and so was I!

    Dang, can't edit the rant anymore. I wanted to add that everyone was out of office and it was like 10:30 PM

    No admins / DevOps in your team? If no, why don't you become one and get a raise?

    @ajit555 It's a small team, 7 employees, of which two back-end developers; me and another guy. There are no admins in our team, so basically the back-end developers are also sysadmins, both Windows and Linux.

    Gotta love working at a small company, but I've enjoyed it a lot so far!

    @DefiniteGoose I am in the process of setting up a team for my future consultancy. In fact, I am the only member in that. But already prepared a set of roles and associated responsibilities / expertise / outputs. I do a role play for each role so that when the team member joins to take that role, there is no ambiguity.

    By any chance, was it something along the lines of 'systemctl restart service'?

    @TheCommoner282 yeah, that's right. It was `apachectl restart`.

    He also didn't know how to connect to the server in the first place, so it was quiet a journey..
