Seems like a sys admin question better suited to server fault.

comment Determine Configured Location of MySQL's data directory OR all loaded *.cfn Locations
Good info, thanks. Getting a process list netted me the data directory (/usr/local/mysql/var), but it looks like there are only sample/test cnf files in the /usr/local/mysql and none was provided for in the process list. Any tips for ferretting that that? (and is a cnf file required? Will MySQL load with default values if one isn't configured?)

comment Securing and Monitoring a Virtual Private Server
Something I've wondered about Suexec and it's ilk for decades ... I see the value of having the scripts run as "me" instead of nobody/the apache user in a shared setup (no 666/777 permissions hanging around) However, I was always taught if I was the only one on the box is was "better" to have scripts/apache running as a non privlaged user so that if someone was compromised the attacker would have a limited number of things they could do on the system. Since you seem to know what you're talking about, do you have any insight on that thought?
