hi all,

i'm not an expert on linux/centos, but i play with it and have a general 
idea.  it's time for me to setup a centos box for development.  i rarely 
install anything from source, except a few times in college when i have to 
modify kernel for OS project.  but i guess i can learn now.

i just installed centos 5 with minimal installation.  next step is to 
install LAMP w/ SSL.

i found http://lamphowto.com/lampssl.html, but i have questions before i 

is it better to install from source or rpm?  how easy it is to 
upgrade/update if install from source?  it seems so much easy to 
upgrade/update from rpm, well b/c i'm always do this way.

is there any other instruction (beside the one mentioned above) to install 

appreciate your help/suggestion
