comment Adding EBS volume to Amazon EC2 server. Do I need to?
I'm afraid that's very specific to your exact server setup -- what filesystem do you use, what applications do you run, where do they store their data, and so on. If you're not a systems administrator yourself, you'll need to find one.

comment How does OpenSSL determine that a certificate is for a root CA?
Your system may have a directory of trusted certificate files rather than a single big file. Try overriding -CApath as well as -CAfile.

comment How can I use VirtualDocumentRoot to serve the www subdomain with SSL enabled?
If you have a wildcard certificate for *.domain.com, then calls to domain.com should be giving you browser warnings of a certificate mismatch, since *.domain.com doesn't match domain.com.

comment SSL on Subdomain Only
Yes, you should be able to use mod_rewrite to redirect the domains that you don't want to use SSL with to the non-SSL versions, and vice versa. Do be aware that you can't (generally) use ServerName directives to host multiple SSL sites with different SSL certificates on the same IP address, but since you've only got one SSL certificate you should be OK. However, calls to domain.com and sub1.domain.com will generate browser warnings that the certificates don't match, since your certificate is (presumably) for sub2.domain.com.

comment Removing default “ubuntu” user from Ubuntu Install on EC2
Someone with access to your AWS login can't pull down your private ssh key -- it's a one-time deal, and after you've created and downloaded it it's no longer available in your AWS account.
