comment Given: iptables entry in place; my.cnf properly set up; MySQL user & permissions properly set - but still cannot access MySQL remotely: Suggestions?
@MichaelHampton - This is correct. I obtained the login info, logged on to the AWS console, and set the security group permissions to allow remote access. Because you answered the question, if you post it as an answer I'll select it as the answer and perhaps someone in the future who runs into this issue will quickly be pointed in the right direction. Thanks!

@MichaelHampton Goodness, the obvious didn't occur to me because I do not own the AWS account and do not have a login for this AWS account's AWS administration page - only access to the specific instance via root-access SSH. I will contact my client now to ask for access to the AWS control panel - unless there's a way to do this directly from within the SSH command line when logged onto the instance? Thanks.

comment “No Signal” when attempting remote console redirection using a BMC with RMM4
If this works on my system as well, the next step for me would be to investigate if a remote-controllable (via internet) KVM switch is available. Thanks for the heads up!

comment Apache logs other user read permissions
@voretaq7 and others - It's ridiculous that a question like this gets down-voted and closed. - Let's get this straight: You're supposed to know the answer in order to ask the question properly? I see. As a C++ and PHP programmer who needs to provide non-root access to these logs to others, I suppose I ... should be ashamed of myself for not knowing how to make this possible? I'll go hang my head in a corner now. Actually, it says the question is not about professional system administration. I see - so as a PHP programmer managing my client's system, I'm a ... phony. Thanks!

comment Amazon EC2 gui access?
Umm - for developers required to build applications, there are plenty of good reasons to want to enable a GUI on an EC2 instance.
