    Code:
    71443:~/opt# ~/opt/lampp/lampp start

    As per the apachefriends site, (I am not able to post the link)

    "As mentioned before, XAMPP is not meant for production use but only for developers in a development environment."

    Is it just a standard disclaimer or is there a better, production-worthy LAMP version that I could install?

    The link does mention a way to address "most" of the security issues:

    /opt/lampp/lampp security

    s this good enough?

    s [sic] this good enough?
    The available LAMP VPSlink templates are probably closer to a "production-worthy" build. I'm not sure if the apache friends version is "good enough" or not, haven't used it, and wouldn't recommend it.

Unfortunately for the server administrator, the hole was enough to give the red cell all that was needed to launch a multi-staged exploitation session that eventually led to root access of the target system.
