comment Running a webserver behind a firewall, is it secure?
+1 for denyhosts. Alternately, fail2ban is a good solution, and can send triggers to your firewall to block the offending source IP address.

comment Dedicated Server or Actually Virtual?
I agree with @JamesRyan. It is (getting more and more) common to virtualize dedicated servers to make the guest OS easy to move around if the hardware dies.

comment MySQL Monitoring - Cloud Instances - No System Access
What kind of monitoring are you trying to get? Very little is beyond nagios, xenoss, etc... plugin capabilities. If you could give ups a hint about the type of statistics you're trying to collect, that would be very helpful.

comment Virtual Host on centos
I agree. The ip/new_site_folder_name scheme is not a function of apache. It's frequently part of some control panel software (such as Plesk, or cPanel), but it does not exist on a default apache installation on CentOS.

comment Extreme fine tuning MySQL performance wise on a Linux server
Using Wordpress, the user generally doesn't have the opportunity to optimize the queries. One would hope that such a well-supported application has its queries well-tuned by default.
