I am a financial analyst in London who uses VBA/MS-Access/MS-Excel and sometimes php to build financial models and portfolio valuation, trading and risk management tools. I also design ordinary websites too from time-to-time where I use html, CSS, JavaScript/jQuery and WordPress.

comment Improve speed of WordPress backend on Ubuntu VPS
Well I thought that but the question is really about server configuration more than WordPress itself. This issue could apply to the backend of any php web application.

comment Improve speed of WordPress backend on Ubuntu VPS
Indeed, but there must be more that can be done to optimise the backend so that it utilizes the server's resources more. It seems the VPS is not being stretched (RAM and CPU are never near 100%)

comment Adding EBS volume to Amazon EC2 server. Do I need to?
Thanks, yes, after more exploring it seems my instance is EBS-backed so no need to create another volume. I'll just resize the current EBS volume to a larger size.

Also, the fact that I have a EBS volume already, does this mean my instance is "EBS-backed" anyway so there is no need for a separate EBS volume?

Well I guess everything should go on the EBS volume. Presumably there is a reasonably simple way to transfer.

OK thanks, can you elaborate on building the filesystem? How would I use the volume on my server and have the my server configs, site data etc on it?
