comment Intermintent slow MySQL Connections
Marking this as answer since its the only one. We ended up upgrading a piece of networking gear between the two servers and have had much better performance since.

comment Using watch to run a shell script - but the script goes defunct
Sorry for taking so long to mark this correct. This was the trick I needed. I set -W 2 and now it works like a champ!

comment Using watch to run a shell script - but the script goes defunct
Cool tool. But I think it only monitors local connectivity. My modem (on the other side of a router) is going down. So the system I am testing from still has an active link to the LAN, just not the internet.

comment Using watch to run a shell script - but the script goes defunct
When the ping is succeeding, watch will keep re-running the script every 15s. I don't want to use cron as 1 minute is not a small enough window of time. I think the modem is dropping off for 30-60 seconds at a time. I want to get an email every 15s until the link is restored, so I can tell if it was down for 30s or 2 minutes.

comment PHP Image upload folder
I'm afraid someone will find a way to upload their own PHP file and run it. You don't need to use an index.php since you can just Options -Indexes to disable directory listing.

Setting the folder to be owned by apache sounds good.
