I'm seeking a combination of apache+mysql+php running on Windows as a production server.

I found niformserver.com, and the site say it can run in production, but this is the first time i see it, I don't know if it is good for me.

My OS is windows 2003, 1G memory ,xeon 2.6G, my site's pv is about 60,000/day and it's still increasing...

is anybody using uniformserver as your production server, what about its performence? is it good for me?

are there any other recommendations?

I also found wampserver.com/en/ , xampp ,appserv-win32-2.5.9.exe ,WebServ-, wamp5_1.7.2.exe , but it seems they are only for personal test purpose.

I'm looking forward your kind suggestion!

thanks a lot!

I'm in the exact same boat you are! I just bought a server and have installed Server 2003 with the intention of learning all of this stuff and eventually hosting my own website on it.

I would STRONGLY recommend downloading the individual programs and installing / configuring them yourself. I realize there are quite a few pre-packed configurations out there but if you are going to manage your own server you really need to learn and understand how the pieces all work together and all the different configuration options.

60,000 pv/day is a lot. I hope you have a strong internet connection.

Just my 2 cents...

On a side note, was there a reason you didn't use IIS built into Windows?

hi wsmeyer,

thank you very much!

yes I don't like IIS, and I love Apache's Rewrite and hotlink pretection.

I think it takes a long time to learn how to configure them separately, I don't have a tutorial.

and the other imortant point is how to opertimize the performance and load. maybe some pre-package have tested and done a good job.

my time is urgent, that's why I'd like a quick solition. so if anyone running wamp for a site with traffic similar to me, I'm eager to know the name of that wamp.

but if you can recommend me any good tutorial, I will greatly appreciate that!

Hi... I am using WAMP on a production Windows 2003 server and so far so good. On the same machine I am running IIS too.

My site doesn't get as many visits though... about 50,000 page views per month. I suggest you give it a try for a couple of days and see how it handles. In the meantime you can try learning more about installing the individual components.

I hope this helps.
