Maybe after or before the current paragraphs we could add a new one with a
"quick" steps (no much details, basically just the commands) to install LM
on a Ubuntu server machine on top of Apache or Ngnix. I have something
already written along those lines that is some time now I want to
contribute (is for Apache, not ngnix). I guess I will have to add some line
about the new mandate for the Lizmap QGIS Server plugin, but should not be

- make your own github repo or github gist and we will a link similar to

Note that our recipe for QGIS Server and Lizmap on Windows (that we never
endorsed for production) is in need at least of an update, and I'm not even
sure if QGIS Server plugins will work (they should, but not 100%).  This
just to say that I'm tempted to discontinue it in favour of instructions on
how to install QGIS Server and Lizmap using WSL.
