What to choose, httpd or apache2 for Ubuntu


#1

Hello, I am starting a new server using AWS OpsWorks, and we are installing on Ubuntu 14.04, to install Apache and PHP, we need to use the httpd or the apache2 cookbook from the supermarket???

Whats the difference?? I particularly preferred httpd because the config, can it be used??

Thanks

Look at the readme page of https://github.com/chef-cookbooks/httpd
It shows a list of platforms that the httpd cookbook works on.

The apache2 cookbook works on pretty much any platform Iโ€™ve come across.

So if the platform is supported in the httpd cookbook then itโ€™s up to what
you prefer.
