Just a query here to people running (or wanting to run) their own web servers.
I've use a Linux LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL Php) type of server for a while but with a Virtual Windows Server 2008 I'm actually thinking of "Retiring" my old Linux server -- I need the box just for a simple Audio streamer so I won't be using it as part of my Home network for "general purposes" such as email, file and print serving.
I don't like IIS as it seems overtly complex -- in any case I've got to the stage where I can write MySQL queries without even thinking about it and MySQL is also comapatble with Windows.
I've seen the Windows equivalent of LAMP -- WAMP (Windows, Apache, MySQL and Php)
Anybody tried this combination -- Php should be easy enough to get working on Windows. MySQL worksd fine but waht's the Apache server like compared with its Linux counterpart.
From the small testing I've done with Windows 2008 Server -- seems FINALLY MS is fighting back into the server market. Seems a great product and reasonably compatable with Windows 7 as well.
Feedback appreciated -- especially the differences in setting up an Apache server on Windows compared to Linux.
Running a Virtual server is fine BTW if you have enough hardware to do it -Got 16GB RAM on this machine witrh a decent QUAD processor as well.
