Web PI seems to make it very easy to install popular open-source apps and keep it up-to-date, even if based on a non-MS software stack (like Wordpress).
Given I'm only familiar with the Microsoft stack (IIS, ASP.NET, MSSQL etc.), and not PHP, is it a good idea to take a small virtualized Windows Web Server instance, and use Web PI to set up a public installation of say Wordpress and its dependencies like PHP etc.? Does it follow common practices concerning security, stability etc.?
Or is this only intended for developer machines and I better let someone with a better understanding of PHP do a "hardened" manual setup?
I should add that no other software would be deployed on this VM, so I'm not afraid about Web PI messing with my custom IIS configuration.
