The install went fairly smoothly. It might have been nice to include the option of a static IP install in the non-expert mode install, but that wasn't a big problem.

What was a problem, and that might not be a problem with the install script itself as much as the apache2 package, is the configuration of Apache 2. It doesn't work "out of the box" as installed from the installation utility. The DocumentRoot for the default VirtualHost is set to "/var/www" but the files normally associated with the DocumentRoot of a new install are actually located in "/var/www/apache2-default".

This may be a feature not a bug, but it did sort of violate my expectations.

A much more minor issue (if that's possible) is a wish for a template in /etc/apache2/sites-available that is set up for a normal virtual site rather than only the one for the default site. I had to scratch my head a little to figure out what to add and what to delete from the default site to make a working virtual.
