[SATLUG] LAMP Server Question #1

I used to use Fedora exclusively at a vendor's suggestion, but the latest versions have frustrated me (and the vendor, too, apparently), so depending on how I'm using the server, I'll go to either CentOS or Ubuntu for this purpose.

At work, the Unix team uses RedHat internally, and CentOS is the easiest external analog to what I would need. I've used it at other jobs (for LAMP) before, while Ubuntu functioned primarily as a personal workstation instead of an actual server.

Subject: [SATLUG] LAMP Server Question #1

I am working on a project that involves setting up a server for a 
customer where they will need to access a database on an on-going basis 
for various kinds of record-keeping, etc.  I have come to the conclusion 
that a LAMP server will be the best solution for them (I won't bore you 
with all the reasons why, but let's assume that is the way I will go).

This will be the first time I will undertake a project quite like this, 
so I have a few specific questions where I would like some opinions, 
especially the professionals out there who may have done jobs similar to 
this for paying customers.

Since the questions deal with different topics, I will send them out 
separately so as not to muddy the waters by mixing things together.

-->  QUESTION #1:

So the first, and most important, question is which distribution would 
you recommend, and why?  I already have an idea of which way to go, but 
one or more of you might have a better suggestion.
