After a Hard drive fails, and is replaced. What is the procedure to get up and running again, using Deja Dup backup from external USB drive.

This has not happened yet, but I am planning my disaster recovery.

Do I just : 1. Install Ubuntu 2. Run Deja Dup - recovery and everything is up and running again ?

Or do I need something like 'Ghost' to clone my drive as backup ?

My system includes: Apache2, MySql, PHP as well as the standard /Home stuff.
