comment Would it be okay to run Apache on one EC2 instance and MYQSL on another?
@Yuttadhammo: I've not used RDS myself, so I can't speak to it's effectiveness. We noticed it too late in our deployment to make it worth it.

comment Enable APC User Cache on certain sites only (Apache)
@DaedalusFall: WRT Plesk, that's why we're moving off Plesk with the new hosting server we're setting up for our clients. Instead, we're using Puppet. There's a bit more upfront cost, but set up well, it's looking like it'll greatly simplify things for us. But that's another conversation entirely.

@DaedalusFall: I've been really happy with nginx. With regards to your problem though, if you're stuck with mod_php, then APC isn't a viable solution ever, so I have to agree with cstamas. Go with memcached.

comment How to configure a VPS to resolve a domain name
Re: ps-2, you can run dig mydomain.com +short on your server. If you don't get any response, then your DNS is not set up.

@mdpc Yes, I tried to sanitise a bit, but failed miserably. Oops. Should be consistent now though (though, see my answer).

comment Linux /home privacy
@andol: Not very. In reality, 'all eventual legitimate admin needs' includes at least global chown and chmod. Even if you limit off those sorts of system commands, the list of alternative applications that can give you a shell is very long. Most 'smart' text editors, any scripting language, even seemingly simple stuff like service (RHEL init.d control script) can be abused if you have write access to /etc/sysconfig or /etc/init.d or some other config files.

comment How to extinguish a small fire in a server rack to minimize damage to surrounding equipment?
+1, totally agreed. Electrical fires, and fires in general, are very dangerous. Hardware can be replaced. Software can be reinstalled. Data can be restored (you have backups, right?). Lives can't be revived.
