Use "screen" to hold your session alive, so that you can reconnect when you disconnect.

Start with one server, but write your application in a way that it is prepared to run on multiple servers (different server for DB and web).

comment How to sudo as another user, without specifying the username
Have the script start by switching users (or write a wrapper script that does that, then calls the actual script). You sudo to root, the script sudos to the user (it can, since it is root) and all is good.

Not a programming question. Should be moved to serverfault, or maybe Wordpress to suggest caching plugins etc.

comment How do I know I'm running inside a linux “screen” or not?
Place your totem on the table, and let it spin. If it keeps spinning, you're OK. Else you're in a screen :]

Not about programming. Belongs on serverfault instead.

comment Best Practices in Username Standards: Avoiding Problems
Yes for the exception! Some countries in Africa don't even know the concept of a "first name" and "last name": the father's first name becomes the son's last name, and the son gets a new first name...
