There we go. The only issue I have is DNS lookups (I think that's the issue), but whatever is causing an initial load-up issue. Might run a trace later. Wordpress is slightly slower than vB 4 for some odd reason.I am on a windows server 2008 box. Well its a VM on a colo server that my friend runs for me and him
IIS and PHP runs good had no issues so far.
For me, Apache is a big no-no on Windows. If he's using Windows Server 2008 / R2, I highly reccommend he switch to IIS w/ FCGI. (and WinCache for extra benefit).Have a couple of sites running on a Windows box apparently, though the dude hosting the sites uses Apache rather than IIS.
The performance of either combination works really well. I am more surprised at PHP on Windows than anything honestly.
Interesting. Whatever I do in configuration, it never matched the quality and speed I achieved, using a Linux server.I use Apache on windows server, and have been for years with out a hitch. You just have to really know how to configure it correctly, and assign the right permissions. It is like anything else. So far so good, it's been running rock solid.
Naw you have a whole bunch of products like WAMP that allows even us lame windoze users to feel all techie and such
