Bitnami Ubuntu Lampstack on public facing server

I have a server in a colo that has one NIC and it is not behind our firewall.  I am thinking of installing Bitnami Lampstack (Ubuntu) image on it to use as a web server.  Are there security issues with this type of configuration?  
I would have port 80 open for HTTP and ssh open for admin.

Are Bitnami images ok to use or should I start from scratch?

Thanks,  Kevin.

Bitnami image has php, apache, and MySQL configured and ready to go. I am pretty new to Linux so it saves me a few steps.
