Web servers typically do not benefit from extra space, either. basically web servers don't use storage in any way. But SSDs at least give you faster boot times, swap space, updates, etc. Extra space would give us literally nothing, in our cases.
Are your DBs for your WP servers running on the same or different hosts from WP?
You want them on the same for performance. There is no advantage to centralization except a tiny bit of consolidation that would come at a cost of performance and reliability to the customers. If they are on a separate box there are more points of failure to worry about, more noisy neighbour risks, and huge latency bumps.
I guess if I setup a script to dump the database to a specific directly on some schedule, I could then ensure I have that directory included in the git commit. This would give me a database version 100% compatible with the point in time git made the commit of the rest of the stuff.
@ajstringham I cannot help sorry, I just turned up 4 websites on my CentOS7 server. all working perfectly.
I figured out the issue. I had everything set up correctly. Turns out my NoIP settings were wrong. Once I fixed those (that is what actually fixed it), it all started working! @scottalanmiller helped out tremendously! Thanks all!
