comment How can Cloudlfare speed up PHP/MySQL?
It's worth mentioning that Cloudflare has a feature called "page rules" that allow you to serve cached versions of HTML generated by your web app on a per-page basis. If you want to serve entire static pages containing little dynamic content from Cloudflare instead of from your own server, you can do that. This is useful for About pages, FAQs, and even for busy dynamic sites that update periodically. Cloudflare is more than a CDN, so it's not limited to serving static images and scripts – you can have it cache and serve whole pages too.

comment Are there privacy considerations in using Google web fonts?
Sure, we can use chat for this. The question wasn't about security risks – it was about privacy risks. I agree that Google Web Fonts present little security risk.

FontFeed touches on the privacy implications of using Google Web Fonts. It's hard to know what Google do with the data they collect, but there is potential to identify visitors of sites that use Web Fonts via the user's browser fingerprint cross-referenced with other Google services they use such as Gmail and YouTube. That may pose no problem to many webmasters, but if you don't want to leak data about your users to third parties, it's best not to link to third-party libraries. This includes omitting "Like" and "Tweet" buttons.

comment WordPress keeps redirecting my users to install.php, Is it caused by an injection hack?
Another suggestion here recommends repairing the database tables via phpMyAdmin. It sounds like a database corruption issue to me – WordPress's load.php file calls is_blog_installed(), which checks for the presence of known WordPress-related tables. For some reason (likely corruption), it can't find yours.
