comment What is the difference between an ssh key and a CA Certificate?
They're different things used by different software for different purposes. Both purposes happen to include encryption of traffic carried over a public network, but that's really the only thing that they have in common. The fact that you can access your VPS by ssh has no relevance to your ability to put an SSL certificate on it.

comment Why my webcam does not work when using a browser, while it works fine locally?
For the community to help, you'll have to provide a lot more details. What make and model of webcam, how is it connected to your computer, how is it accessed locally, how are you trying to access it remotely, what's happening when you try to access it in the browser, are there any relevant logs, and so on.

comment How to configure phpMyAdmin to access multiple servers?
That doesn't tell me how to do it using the Ubuntu way of configuring it, so it doesn't answer the question at all.

comment Harddisk slows my touchpad
Yes, if the disk and the touchpad share a USB bus then the disk may be pulling too much power. If you can, try connecting the disk via a powered USB hub.
