    Hello everyone and thank-Q for taking the time to read this, my question is the following:

    which of the following WS do u recommend using on NT?

    Omni HTTPD
    MS PWS
    IIS 3.0+
    Apache
    any others?

    i know Omni HTTPD is the easiest of all to configure PHP 3.0 on, but how about MySQL and NT, do they like each other?


    php and MySQL Newbie
    once again tahnk-Q for taking he time....
    ur help is greatly apreciated..

    Depending on what your looking for, I would say OMNIhttpD is the easiest to setup ...

    IIS I would use if your wanting to setup an eCommerce server.

    Apache, even on NT I think is your stablest bet.

    WindowsNT and MySQL work fine together .. my MySQL server currently has been up for 189 days. On a WinNT box.

    my favorite is just apache, because of low system usage
    Apache is a complete new type of webserver, that uses child processes, and starts these independant of the main server

    And, PHP has some specific Apache commands and options, so to take full advantage of php, i should recommend Apache

    i happen to know another webserver, which i think deserves consideration since it's as easy as omnihttpd.. try xitami webserver. it's small and pretty powerful.. check it out at www.xitami.com

    though, from all webservers known,.. i would definately choose.. apache..
