Avoid Potholes When Deploying Drupal Sites to Media Temple Virtual Private Servers

I recently had occasion to set up a new Drupal site on a dedicated virtual private server on Media Temple (dv 4.0). Everything was going swimmingly until I deployed the site and tried to reach it via the IP address.

The result was the install.php page, even though my settings file was uploaded and had the correct settings for the database.

To make matters more frustrating, the log files were not located in the standard place (/var/log/httpd/domain.com-error.log)
