comment mysql stopped after an import on a server
How can you possibly advocate adding SWAP - over adding more RAM?

comment Use HAProxy or Nginx to Load Balance between VPS
And you cannot float a single IP between different providers without the use of either an MPLS network or BGP announcement. Either of which are far out of reach of the OP's capability and understanding. DNS is neither suitable for load balancing nor High Availability and your answer is just plain inaccurate.

comment Use HAProxy or Nginx to Load Balance between VPS
I'm not mistaking either. The OP was looking for a way to use multiple VPS's to load balance amongst multiple back ends. But was mentioning the use of a virtual IP, which means they were looking at UltraMonkey/Heartbeat or otherwise, in conjunction with HAProxy. The OP asked for load balancing plus failover - something you wouldn't get with a single load balancer, nor would you get with "DNS load balancing". You can't be highly available using a single load balancer, nor using DNS to load balance.

comment Use HAProxy or Nginx to Load Balance between VPS
It makes sense - you just don't understand. With MPLS or BGP - yes. With a bunch of VPS's from different providers - no. You would never be able to "float" a virtual IP between different providers. The best you could get is DNS to balance between those, then each of those balance between the backends - but then you're reliant on DNS - which isn't remotely appropriate for load balancing.

comment php-fpm crashing because of to many mysql processes
The scope for an answer of this question is far, far, far too broad. You've got multiple levels of optimisation that you need to approach here - and all are specific to your needs. From the TCP/IP stack to userland apps (MySQL/PHP). Short of people giving you generic advice - you're not going to get an accurate solution here.

comment Nginx to apache reverse proxy, instruct use of unix sockets
AFAIK Apache doesn't support listening on a socket ... its a web server. If performance is your reason for doing this, the difference between sockets/tcp is negligible for most web servers - as the bottleneck is whatever app is running anyway (PHP/Perl etc.)
