I would like to know about best practices for Ubuntu 12.04 server for production environment.

For instance, recently I found whoopsie service, after short investigation I decided that I don't really need this service on my production server, so I disabled it.

I am looking for this kind of practices, services that can be disabled, non-standard useful services that can be installed.

What does "useful" mean? If you want to use email, then an email server is uesful. If you want to want to use an SQL database, you'll likely want to install one. Most services are useful to somebody and very few are installed by default. This question is too vague to answer here. –  Jo-Erlend Schinstad Aug 6 '12 at 14:12
@Jo-ErlendSchinstad, thank you for the comment, I am mostly interested in useless services like whoopsie –  com Aug 6 '12 at 15:26
