Would you be using a very high compression flag for gzip ?

comment Deploying new code live
You don't need to restart the server, just reload it. The delays are created due to the 'mv' command. Look at my suggestion with 28+ votes bellows- you just need a symbolic link (you can even put it one level lower (ie: /var/www/(current)/html ; current being the symlink)).

My point was that the question stipulate that he wanted to remove the downtime. This just artificially hide it from the user and actually lengthen it, due to backlog processing. Your downtime, using this method, is longer than it would have been in his previous procedure. To be able to withstand this technique you need to be able to hold a very high 'free capacity' pool in your production system (ie: able to deal with 5x the current traffic). This isn't cost effective. There's better way to scale if you need burstable capacity.

Please note that in any high traffic website, this will could very easily kill your Apache service. 200 rq/s will very easily trash your connection pool as soon as you will 'unlock' your Apache process after the move (if the move take a while)

comment Cloudformation Add Instance to Security Group in Different Region
Between regions, I would simply do it with a configuration management system & deployment scripts automatically assigning IP to security group through EC2 API.

comment Using Gmail apps. New VPS. All mail working except incoming mail to @domain.com emails sent from server
The other mail should have been bounced back to sender because recipient didn't exist - which mean yourself, which should mean postmaster, which should mean root on the box). I would suggest looking into /var/mail/root (or /var/spool/mail/root) file.

comment MySQL Remote Access
Sometime, 'flush privileges;' help a lot, after adding your user... (depends on the version of MySQL). Otherwise, i'd say you forgot the security group modification.
