What are the advantages to a "clean" install of 14.04 and a LAMP stack vs the "LAMP on 14.04" one-click app?
I need to setup a new LAMP production server. I’m sure the One-click app “LAMP on 14.04” can do the job. So wondering if installing 14.04 and LAMP scratch is worth the extra time. I’d probably just do the basics listed here -> https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-linux-apache-mysql-php-lamp-stack-on-ubuntu-14-04
The clear advantage of the one-click app is speed. Assuming I’m going with a vanilla LAMP install, what are the advantages of installing everything myself?
