The two server arrangement gives you a fallback plan, for example during a long upgrade of the database server to new O/S and RDBMS, you can run the old RDBMS on the web server- and lower performance, of course.

comment MySQL slow/down under heavy load

comment How to strip a Linux server distro to the core?
A benefit of fully uninstalling unused packages is shorter package dependency changes, which means fewer, faster and shorter update downloads and less chance a fairly useless package will have an update issue. Also your /var partition will fill up slower/need less attention.

comment Accidently unmounted a local folder
Chances are the mount point of the folder you want is a parent of the folder, and not the folder itself, and/or you need to specify the partition being mounted.
