comment Mount a Symlink Directory to Document Root for Deployment
In my setup, the parent 2 levels above DocumentRoot required the Options Symlinks Directive. So <Directory /var/www/site/staging/>Options FollowSymLinks</Directory>

comment Mount a Symlink Directory to Document Root for Deployment
unfortunately the DocumentRoot should be current/public. This allows items in the project to be placed outside the document root. I don't believe the DocRoot can be a symlinked subdirectory like current/public is. Am I wrong on this? This was not shown correctly in the intial question but is updated.

comment Replace MySql databases with a more recent copy via command line
Upon checking all Innodb tables are ok. For MyISAM, can a mysql stop followed by copying MYD & MYI files work? Are there other considerations?

comment /etc/init.d/iptables-persistent start returns fail but seems to work
ip6tables-restore < /etc/iptables/rules.v6 works. Does that mean I do not need to explicity start iptables persistent? Instead I should use iptables-restore and ip6tables-restore?

comment What is the difference between these 2 iptables rules?
@MichaelHampton As a general rule of thumb, should we decline Output traffic by default? Simple webserver with outbound mail and mysql database

Sorry I wasn't clear... DirectoryIndex index.php was inside a directory statement. I added to question. Still not working.

comment Required entries in DNS records
Thanks Joe. That's why I'm asking. Obviously a lot are subjective but are any important ones missing or misconfigured? And how about Havarti?

comment Required entries in DNS records
PTR would be necessary only if sending outbound mail from the domain or would I need it in other situations?

comment /usr/bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
Embarrassing on both accounts - #2 & #3 had improper syntax - duh. Issue #1 had the .my.cnf file in the wrong location! Too much work today.

comment Mount --bind versus symlinks
Thanks. I assume the reboot is breaking the mount. I will try the fstab.

Added clarity to the question regarding the error message. Key never changed. Credentials are the same. Hacking is a possibility but doubtful.
