That's correct @sysadmin1138 - I do only have a single IP address to work with too.

vipw did the job for the user, but I had to change the case in /etc/group too.

comment how to disable SSH login with password for some users?
It's so much stronger it's not in the same ball-park, that was my point. Password authentication should be disabled for root too and keys only allowed for logins.

comment how to disable SSH login with password for some users?
@ceejayoz In the context of SSH, I'd suggest that's what a key-based login is for. Usually root login is unavoidable for admins who don't have physical access to their servers, very common in smaller scale web applications.

comment VMWare hypervisor with only 1 network card?
I am curious as to why they have specified you need two, if it's clearly possible to operate without it... does it involve any trickery with configuration to achieve?

comment Inter-site linking with a WAN cluster infrastructure
Thanks, n2n is interesting but we do not feel it is tested enough for a production solution. We are in a situation to setup a firewall-based VPN tunnel which I think you'll agree is preferable.

comment I just removed a folder in /tmp/ and now apache/mysql is bugged. What just happened?
OVH puts the / on a different partition to /home. You could just move the database files to a new dir on that partition, e.g. /home/mysql. You aren't going to be able to repartition it very easily without KVM.
