comment “chown mysql:mysql /data/tmp” command
@Mellon Without any other context, it means mkdir -p /data/tmp && cp cars.dat /data/tmp

comment “chown mysql:mysql /data/tmp” command
Why are you focusing on /data/tmp? If you don't know why you're doing that, stop. Unless you have a specific need you can explain for changing the default directories, don't do it. You're asking a question that is above your understanding -- you don't yet know why /data/tmp might matter to you (and I'm guessing it won't), so take a step back from trying to do the work to move there.

comment “chown mysql:mysql /data/tmp” command
@Mellon the path literally is /data/tmp. At least on my Ubuntu configuration, that's not a default path (nor does /data exist as a directory). The default Ubuntu location for my.cnf is /etc/mysql/my.cnf

comment Poor load balancer performance on rackspace and centos
Please show us the actual output of your command. By the way, parallel 40 instances * 50 calls per second (your config values) == 2000 requests per second. Maybe that's your problem?

comment Server hitting high loads and becoming very slow
@srchulo See httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/mpm_common.html#maxclients, set them to be the same if you want to avoid the warning, and it should be fine unless you see the site get slow (which indicates resource consumption).

comment Idle RAM usage increased from 144MB to 510 MB after upgrade to MySQL v5.5.16
@webworm Sounds like a good price, and a good way to learn. I'd be happy to help you learn in any way I can.

256MB is more than enough for a small Wordpress install. I think what you're seeing through the control panel includes the cache usage. A lot of data would have been read form disk in the process of updating, and I strongly presume that is showing as utilization. Take a look at that other question I referenced. I don't know what you're paying now, but I've found a personal love for EC2 micro instances.
