comment Create Webmin user for an EC2 Instance
This is not necessary. SSH authentication is not, in any way, related to Webmin authentication. Both use PAM on the backend, but the sshd configuration does not apply to Webmin authentication.

comment Cannot login to virtualmin, even with working root password
Do you have a root user entry in the /etc/webmin/miniserv.users file? What does it look like? How about /etc/webmin/webmin.acl?

comment Squid and Webmin - the 'all' acl
Actually, Webmin's Squid module was updated for Squid 3.0, but I'm guessing this was a change that came between the betas used for the original support in Webmin and the current stable versions. File a ticket, and it will get fixed. It's really not hard to file a ticket; and you'll then end up with a Webmin that supports the software you're using. If no one reports a problem, regardless of how many people hit it, it doesn't get fixed.

comment How do you serve php files located outside of the apache folders
This breaks mod_fcgid/suexec in VirtualHost sections. It's better to do this specifically for the directory you want this to work on; or to do it for specific VirtualHosts where you want phpmyadmin to run from the server-wide installation. A safer option may be to install phpmyadmin inside a virtual host, rather than using the apt-provided package, so that it can run under suexec and as a normal user (the Debian/Ubuntu package runs as the Apache user).

comment Securing a freshly installed LAMP + Virtualmin server
How important is security to you? SuExec is a security feature, as I explained. If you aren't hosting other users, then it is less important. It does not slow down the server in any way that would matter (your application and database will be several orders of magnitude slower than the suexec checks). You should disable it if you know what you're doing, and the additional security it provides is not needed in your deployment. At the moment, you don't know what you're doing, so don't disable it until you do.
