Using an Ubuntu cloud server for a single website, are there any drawbacks from just using the default /var/www folder and the default Apache configuration and getting on with it?
Someone suggested to me that there may be security and performance issues with the out-of-the box approach as outlined above.
Having got the website up and running with the default configuration, what (if any) are my next concerns regarding managing the server well?
* The application is a commercial Drupal 6 eCommerce site.
* I am using Ubuntu 12.04 and latest releases of Apache, PHP & MySQL.
