It's generally known that it's a horrible idea to use these one-click LAMP stack installers for anything but local development. That said, with surprising regularity, we seem to get questions from people that are trying to use these in production. The vast majority of these users fall into the category where they should be migrated to SU, but often times that doesn't happen.
It would be quite nice if we could come to a concensus as to how to handle these questions.
My thoughts are thus:
- If it's obvious that the Q is better suited for SU, then migrate it there.
- If there's a chance that it's being used in a professional capacity, but they're trying to use it for production, then close it as a dupe of the canonical "Why *AMPP shouldn't be used in production" question.
- If it doesn't match 1 or 2, then answer the question as appropriate.
taskselfall into this category?
taskselmerely selects the appropriate packages out of Debian's repo and installs them for you. This is far superior to the *AMP one-click installer packages.
sudo apt-get install lamp-server^
