comment Security issues of running PHP scripts as the owner of the PHP file with suexec
The problem is that every time a user uploads a file over FTP, it appears under HIS ownership. So the admin will have to chown files over to the PHP user every time the FTP user does anything with it. You can get away with this on a small scale, but it's not sustainable on a large scale.

comment which virtualization technology is right for me?
Xen isn't quite as popular since the project got bought by Citrix. I imagine it makes the Linux people nervous. I agree with your assessment of kvm and vbox.

comment Run command remotely on Windows computer
Rightscale is a solutions provider for EC2. Linode also uses Xen. The solution is roughly the same, though the details might change a bit.

comment Apache, suexec, PHP, suPHP
@FractalizeR: Normally you use both at the same time. SuPHP is for PHP, suexec is for CGI. You can run PHP over suexec by running PHP as a CGI, but that's a bit unnecessary since better (more secure, more efficient) options for PHP exist.

comment Fedora vs Ubuntu vs Debian to host Subversion and Bugzilla over Apache
Right, but debian and rhel/centos are more server-centric than fedora and ubuntu. Hence the grouping.

comment What does this error mean? “Red Hat Enterprise Linux Test Page”
Obviously that's WAY too much text for you to actually read, but if you got around to it, you'd notice that it's actually a set of instructions telling you exactly what do.
