It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Your question is way too vague -- we have no idea what kind of service you are going to run. Do you need PHP? If, what PHP modules you need? Do you need Python/Java? Will it be a high-traffic site needing something like Varnish and memcached? Do you use database? If, what? And so on... the question list is endless. – Janne Pikkarainen May 25 '12 at 8:24

Only those which you will actually need. Keeping unneeded services off a production server is just one of the ways of making sure things run smoothly.
