Problems faced configuring LAMP

1. All the virtual host need to use the private IP address in the virtual host directive rather the elastic IP or it will not work.

i.e.

Good

<VirtualHost 10.202.150.134:80>

Not

<VirtualHost *:80>

<VirtualHost 0.0.0.0:80>

<VirtualHost 184.72.230.132:80>

2. Access denied for user ‘www-data’@’localhost’ shows up if the first attempt to connect to database has failed and application has used mysql_query after that, so php won’t find any active connections so it would try default settings to connect to database, quite hard to fix.
