Keywords: LAMP/MAMP/WAMP - AWS - How to - Upgrade
I'm in the process of spinning up a new AWS Lightsail instance and migrating my stack to take advantage of an upgrade from PHP 7.1 to 7.4. I had anticipated it would be quite an easy job, but realise over the last 18 months I've made countless small config adjustments, so it's taken quite some time to redo everything. I also have a niggle that AWS package the Bitnami LAMP on a different base O/S.
So my question / suggestion is. How can I determine what O/S config changes I have made that I need to replicate. And could I have selected Ubuntu again, or is Debian in some ways better and immaterial to what I'm doing anyway.
PHP7.1 - 4.4.0-1113-aws #126-Ubuntu SMP Fri Aug 14 13:24:17 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
PHP 7.4 - 4.19.0-10-cloud-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.132-1 (2020-07-24) x86_64 GNU/Linux
Feedback much appreciated before I switch the IP to the new server.
