Hello, I'm not to sure about the servers. I use Windows XP Pro and I'm coding and stuff offline to learn more about php, lasso and mysql. I've been doing this awile now but I've had problems with various php/mysql scripts. I usually get scripts from hotscripts.com and have prolly about 100 different programs running. Just messing moreless.
On IIS 5.0 that comes with WINXP Pro, I ran IIS5.0, MySQL, PHP and Lasso. Every once in a while, IIS would hang and would not do anything at all. This happened on many propular scripts such as php nuke. I have also ran the same configuration above along with Cold Fusion and tried, Xitami (imatix.com), Omnihttpd, and Apache.. All these servers ran well with no problems. Xitami is slow, Apache is much better but I don't care much for non gui stuff, and Omnihttpd is the fastest in my opinion. However, I'm only using this software on a home computer, Gateway 1.5 MHZ with 512 MB ram. I am now using apache again on WINXP PRO and all has been well for now. Personally, I like IIS although it does get slow on smaller servers with alot of traffic. ASP and the likes slow it down to much for me but other than that, there is alot of documentation for seting it up to run various programs such as Cold Fusion, Lasso, Php ect. I know this isn't much help. It's just my thoughts on what I've went through recently and just my general thoughts on the server. Remember, Apache on WIN2K or any windows machine isn't nearly as fast as on linux.
