comment Copy MySQL to RAM as a poor man's memcached replacement?
This is not a sensible solution! Why run a slave on the same box and introduce potential replication issues when InnoDB will happily run with hundreds of GBs of data in the buffer pool? mysqlperformanceblog.com/2007/11/03/…

comment run local MySQL instance for fast mysql_real_escape_string calls
thanks for the info, I misunderstood the PHP manual implying that this was a call to the server: mysql_real_escape_string() calls MySQL's library function mysql_real_escape_string.

In what circumstances was the original machine shut down (cleanly/HD crash/pulled power etc) and when did you/they copy the /var/lib/mysql files into place (server running/MySQL running/disk mounted on other machine etc)?

comment PHP mail not working anymore
@Chris try searchings the logs for your MTA for your email address (ask Google if unsure) and see if the mail even made it into the queue/attempted delivery etc - only once it works from the command line return to debugging it from PHP.

comment How to select an Amazon EC2 kernel?
Unless you have a specific kernel-based requirement (perhaps a bugfix or feature) there's no need to deviate from the default kernel.
