Manual vs Stackscript setup

I've recently built a new Linode from scratch, and not having kept up recently I wasn't aware of the StackScripts route. So I wonder if it's possible to find out where my manual configuration differs from the one I would have had from a LAMP stackscript? Specifically interested in the claim "[Need a way to quickly get a LAMP stack up and running] that's automatically tuned, tweaked and optimized for you" - my emphasis here of course.

You can read through the stackscript to see what it does, and compare it to how you set up your system. It largely consists of scaling memory-dependent settings (e.g. MaxClients), if I recall correctly.

Yeah, check out the apachetune, mysqltune, and php_tune functions in the Bash library stackscript.

> check out the apachetune, mysqltune, and php_tune functions Hey, great utility, wasn't aware of it. And of course, I can run any of those shell commands myself. Thanks for the heads-up.
