Alpine has two large (technical) differentiating details from Ubuntu.
1. We use the musl libc instead of glibc.

This should not mean much in your use-case, since Apache, MySQL and PHP
are all available.

2. We use openrc instead of systemd/sysv/upstart (and so on).

This *will* affect you, but it should not be particularly significant.
It basically means that enabling/disabling/starting/stopping services
will work a bit differently.
However, such basic usage is quite simple, and you should not have any
particular problems.
