comment Moving from Rackspace to EC2 - EBS vs. instance store
I am always astounded by the generosity of people on both Stackoverflow and Serverfault. The effort you put in has really helped me. Eric's answer is also very valuable but yours takes the cake because it is so thorough. Many thanks mate. Rich

comment for security is it best to have phpmyadmin locally or in cloud
I am using Rackspace Cloud Linux Hardy instances. cPanel looks like it is a hosting company tool, is it suitable to install on a dedicated virtual server at rackspace and to use that to manage my other instances? If so how does it shield phpmyadmin from the outside world?

Problem with known office IPs is that we might want to maintain on the road using myfi or similar. Are you really happy to have phpmyadmin sitting there open to the world? I suppose I could put it on an admin web server and only allow access from fixed IPs but then still got same problem of access via myfi.

comment VMWare MySql very slow!
And further when I run up 2 Hardy VMWare clients and one of them has phpmyadmin on, it can administer it's own mysql instance lightning fast but hit the other server and it is slow as anything. SO it is slow from windows host and from linux client. That means it's not a network issue as apache responds from host at lightning speed but 3306 is super slow. It's a 3306 issue isn't it? But what?

I should add that I just installed phpmyadmin on the hardy client and when I access it from my host machine it flies. It seems like a problem accessing 3306 from host machine.
