Another PHP programmer responsible for things like the MicroMVC PHP framework.

You may notice that some of my questions run very deep into the heart of certain issues because I strive for the highest optimization that is possible in my apps.

So would 002 be a good umask permission for me?

comment What's the lowest cost, legal, Microsoft server stack you can assemble?
Actually, I would vote for PostgreSQL since it is much more powerful than MySQL. (and I'm a MySQL saying this too!)

Really? I thought that the VirtualBox would cut the speed in half which really matters (even on a Quadcore) with Adobe Aftereffects and Photoshop.

Actually, I will be trying all the things listed here. I am the one that has upvoted all these great ideas. However, the problem isn't that I don't think I can do this - it's needing a bullet-proof fallback when I mess something up and must have it working again ASAP. I have faith in my abilities to manage a server - but that faith is nothing more than faith. I just wanted to know if anyone had a Super-Ultra-Rescue-do-the-laundry VPS out there. Even if I never use their support it's nice to know it's there. ;)

+1 yes, but again I would like to find a host that will be very supportive in this process. There must be one out there...

Thats true, I guess I don't want to test the limits of the box I'm on because I have to use it. However, I still don't know what remains for me to learn to manage a server (other than what I listed) so even if I get those three down I'm unsure if that will be enough to consider my box safe enough to deploy into the real world. That is why I need a very helpful host that can check/support these three because I don't know exactly what I'm doing.

comment Need a helpful/managed VPS to help transition from shared hosting
Well, I already run linux and use it everyday on my own PC - so I'm not sure how running one on a VM would help me. However, I haven't had to setup email (gmail), a firewall yet (Ubuntu auto-does this I think), and my updates are handled by the gnome desktop app. Also, I am not running any web services to let people know I'd be open to attacks. So I still don't know how these three would be handled on a real server. Or even if I need to worry about them - maybe the hosting company would configure the firewall for me...

Ah, good point. Well, I am getting crowded by the limitations of shared hosts. They don't allow testing of new applications (like nginx) nor compiling/making (custom PHP installs). They also don't have the resources that I need to run my sites any longer. I look at server administration as just mountain to climb like programming and auto-repair. However, unlike other tasks I must be extra careful so I don't jeopardize my sites and users. Perhaps you are right and this isn't something I should get into until I know more. If so, (epic question to follow) what should I learn first?

comment Port forwarding for localhost traffic over SSH to production machine database
Thanks, but as stated already, the problem was using localhost instead of 127.0.0.1 because of UNIX domain sockets.
