comment Google apps account settings redirect to new host
Sounds like they're catching NXDOMAIN and for some reason accounts.google.com isn't resolving properly on that ISP. They should contact the ISP's support.

comment Allowing inbound traffic from a different AWS security group
I'm not talking about the security group settings, I'm talking about in your code when you put in the IP/DNS of the mongodb server.

Sounds like you're using the server's external IP/DNS rather than its EC2 internal one.

comment unusual rate of unsolicited mail originating from your IP address
"I agree, but having mailboxes on gmail has its advantages, don't you think?" So pay for Google Apps for Business, which lets you have Gmail for your own domain name.

comment PHP define in config file does not update with new value
I'd look at the code for connecting to the database and make sure it's actually using that setting. Someone probably just hardcoded it or there are multiple config files.

comment update and insert MySQL DB on AWS RDS with local MySQL DB
Why do you think this will reduce costs? You'll be paying for the RDS whenever it's running, even if you aren't making queries.

comment How do I get AWS EC2 Ubuntu Server out of “Stopping” state?
How should it? People would flip on data security reasons if they could peek in on the instance, and some servers have extensive shutdown processes that could legitimately take a good number of minutes. How do you envision such a thing working?

Computers of all sorts get stuck shutting down at times. It's hardly unique to AWS.

comment Amazon EBS Durability
AWS, in general, takes the "you should be able to survive failures" approach. Netflix uses a tool called "Chaos Monkey" to cause intentional random outages of instances, availability zones, and even entire regions. techblog.netflix.com/2010/12/…

comment will hosting provider have access to my dedicated server?
@FlorinAsavoaie A disreputable host may have rootkitted the entire server prior to giving it to you, logging your keys and doing anything they want with it. There's little to be done against a determined attacker with physical access.
