comment File system preventing execution of files
What does the 'mount' command say? Perhaps there are errors that are forcing it to re-mount with restrictive options?

comment nginx: browser rewriting http request to https when not wanted
It's a security feature, chrome and firefox for example will remember the STS setting and all subsequent surfing to that domain will, before sending it to the server, add a s to http before retrieving the page.This is for man in the middle protection and so an attacker can not remove the setting and force http://

comment telnet cannot connect to port without firewall
Do the VPS service allow you to have a public facing mysql server on 3306? Are there any port forwarding settings that you can do at your VPS provider?

comment telnet cannot connect to port without firewall
Well then if there is nothing coming in on port 3306 at all, you need go one step back. Is your server nat:ed? If not, does it have an additional router hop with a firewall before "internet"? Can your client computer actually connect to TCP port 3306? Does it have a firewall blocking the outbound connection? Is the ISP blocking the connection? What are your route tables? Do you have a fault IPV4 route to your host and are connecting over ipv6 with ssh and thats why it works?

comment Should I completely rebuild my server due to Heartbleed?
It all comes down to the importance of the data(and its integrity) and the service the VPS is performing. May i suggest you rebuild the machine while making sure and documenting a faster way to rebuild your system. There is always room for optimizations.
