Relative to our previous Ubuntu LTS scripts, this 22.04 script introduces a series of improvements including:

  • Setting of file/folder permissions based upon the user running the script (Instead of just applying root permissions).
  • Writing of script command output to a file by default, for easier debugging.
  • Simpler command line output to user with clear indication of progress.
  • Checks to ensure a sudo/privileged user is used to run the script.
  • Checks for existing MySQL/Apache usage to prevent conflicts.
