comment Which VPS configuration would be better?
It's not true that with two smaller nodes, you get twice as much CPU and IO. The reason for this is contention. On Linode you only share your node with other nodes of the same size. With a single Linode 1024 you are sharing CPU and IO with 19 other nodes; with two Linode 512s each one is sharing CPU and IO with 39 other nodes. Then again, two separate nodes may still be a good idea for redundancy or even isolation.

comment Preventing the contents of /var/www from being listed when a browser visits my IP
If Options -Indexes isn't working for you remember that it may be overridden somewhere else. Your Apache uses a variety of configuration files within /etc/apache/conf.d for example as well as its main configuration file. But as for me, I just put in a blank index.html file (see my answer below).

comment How to find all occurences of an email address on a website
Sorry LukeR didn't see your question. I was looking for a solution that wasn't dependant on server-side technology - so would work with static, dynamic etc equally. The site in question uses a combination of static site plus blog software plus other software.

comment LAMP stack security question - uploading files to server
@morpheous, this page includes some info about setting up key based auth over SSH: troy.jdmz.net/rsync/index.html Given that both computers are Linux-based then it'll make it a bit easier. As for preserving permissions, you'll be fine. The -a part preserves those. It won't preserve owners/groups, which you probably don't want when going between servers unless it's a backup, in which case look into --fake-super option under rsync's documentation, but that is kinda complicated and requires xattrs on the destination filesystem.
