comment Cloudformation with Ubuntu throwing errors
@chrisbunney Sorry abut that, I found the big error to be formatting, basically syntactical errors which cloudformation didn't seem to break on.

comment Video Uploading on Amazon instances?
Yea I mam getting closer to that zencoder, I have done the math and they are actually cheaper than going it solo...

comment Video Uploading on Amazon instances?
True though I can't house PHP to drop the file should it be malicious can I? I see only the ability to redirect saying the upload is done. Which means if it gets abused the file will upload and save no matter what and I must come bakc later, hmmmm maybe that's what youtube do, they just have a very quick queue that gets it fast and removes it quickly.

Ah so I can, I didn't see that. Thanks! Though if people can upload like that couldn't that make the form easily abusable?

Indeed either way hosting videos is mega expensive. But how would you go about the initial push to S3 or another CDN?

I mean I would rather do it myself cos it's a project, I am learning so I am trying to avoid hosted solutions.

Its not so much the encoding I got that sorted, its the uploading part that's got me, how to upload initially without expending all my disk space on say my app server, should I upload straight to S3 (if possible?) or should I upload some other way?

comment Cifs losing data or changing permissions on files on Ubuntu 11.10 ((12)Cannot allocate memory: file permissions deny server access:)
Thanks for the reply, My DocumentRoot now points to /srv/server_ws/htdocs that is where I am serving the files from. I tried to find a permissions problem as ww-data but I could not, I even edited and save 960.css when I got the problem. Tested it with another permissions problem too on a query-ui.js source file but that turned up nothing :(. I changed my mount point from media to srv just incase but still to no effect. Overall this seems a very elusive problem.

comment High performance, fast yet Durable databases?
Wow facebook still use MySQL...didn't expect that. I spoke with mongo and they were saying they'll have everything fixed by 1.8 so I've decided I'm gonna wait for them to get it fixed and stick with mongo. thanks,

comment High performance, fast yet Durable databases?
Same sort of site if not larger (load wise) than facebook (upto 2 million+ users with 1 or 2 tables stretching on for 10-30 million rows), it's an intranet site but does have outside connections to specific people/companies. Scaling is essential (that is why I am not avoiding it), that is the problem I am having with SQL after about 25 servers it does not scale well. No matter how optimised I query it still is slow and cumbersome compared to something like mongo.

comment Apache vs Nginx
Wait so your saying I could make a multithread worker in java and php can work around it perfectly? I mean the biggest problem I see is the server since I get massive memory problems with Apache using long polling, which is common...ofc fixed by Nginx.

comment Apache vs Nginx
I've been looking at this: joeandmotorboat.com/2008/02/28/… and this: blog.webfaction.com/a-little-holiday-present and it has really got me kiddying at the thought of being able to long poll to my hearts content really. Not a single memory problem unlike Apache :)

comment Apache vs Nginx
Damn that really cleared things up :) thanks that was the explanation I was looking for. I think I'm pretty sold on learning Nginx now since Apache would choke and die using my site. Fortunately it looks really quite easy to move it across. I mean people on node.js have said write most things in that and only poll your php session class if you really need to (which I do unless theres a way of detecting when users close their windows :P). Yea I'm running on a massive server farm so knowing that there is no security threat helps tonnes, thanks for the great explanation :)
