For anyone wondering, Google and Baidu were STILL hitting the old IP address 6 months later.

comment installing Apache and PHP
I don't like installing software I don't need either, but I dislike having software I have installed not work at all, too, because I don't have it configured correctly. So, it's up to you.

Sure, but even if it installed MySQL and Perl, but configured PHP and Apache correctly, you could ignore those and use what you need... unless you're short on disk space, I guess!

The first hit on Google suggest that you might wish to look for php5apache2_5.dll instead.

You might wish to try XAMPP or WAMP, which will install everything for you. There are tons of hits on Google for 'c:/php/php5apache2.dll', by the way.

comment How can I completely delete the contents of my old VPS?
You can also just shred the device directly, as in shred /dev/sda1/ or shred /dev/sda. This will overwrite the entire device. I recall that about ext3 too, but the current shred manual states "In the case of ext3 file systems, the above disclaimer applies (and shred is thus of limited effectiveness) only in data=journal mode, which journals file data in addition to just metadata. In both the data=ordered (default) and data=writeback modes, shred works as usual."

Well, that sounds simple enough. I used to hear about naughty DNS servers that ignored the TTL and cached the host info for 1-2 days regardless. DO you think that's probably won't be a problem?
