You certainly _can_ run ejabberd on any other port. However, lots of clients can only connect through the port 443, so you have to run ejabberd on this port. And it was not possible to setup nginx as a proxy, because ejabberd only pretends to be HTTPS.

Of course, if you control the network of all your clients then you can just use the port 5223 (SSL version).

SSH verifies the identity of both endpoints, and it's impossible to hijack the user's password even in case of MITM. But it's possible to do this if you intercept MySQL port (passwords are sent in the clear) and then you can probably use the gleaned password to do all sorts of bad stuff. Ditto for PostgreSQL.

Detecting this race condition is the hard part. Once you identify it, it's fairly easy to fix it by adding explicit dependencies and/or locking.

The thing is, systemd really solves the root case of race conditions, by not depending on accidents of timing and detecting interdependencies automatically.

There are no real reasons to wait for BIND9 to shut down gracefully. Abrupt shutdown might terminate ongoing zone transfers but they'd be resumed once BIND is again started.

But if you have something that should genuinely be restarted gently (like a in-memory database, for example), systemd supports that just fine:

KillMode=none
TimeoutStopSec=0

It's stupid, but you CAN do it just fine. It simply makes no sense to do by default.

If you are good, you will be assigned all the work. If you are real good, you will get out of it.

Working...
