LEMP Questions

#1
Newbie here trying to build a LEMP server on ubuntu.

I'm following this guide and am at the part where PHP5 is installed. I get the impression that it's better to use this PPA for PHP since it's updated more frequently.

If I used the PPA, would I still need any of the extra modules listed in the guide (pasted below)?
Code:
sudo apt-get install php5-cli php5-fpm php5-mysql

I personally prefer dot.deb as the for the repository. It is updated regularly also. You will also need spawn-fcgi (if I remember correctly) and I would recommend looking at Percona for mySQL replacement.
