Subject RE: [users@httpd] Apache2 on Win XP
Date Fri, 12 Aug 2005 19:56:38 GMT
I'm not sure what you mean exactly by 'security' but if you mean

There are not many authentication modules that will work on windowz.  I
had to end up using mod_auth_dbm, an old flat files auth mod.

The windows version also runs under just 2 threads.  All the responses
are under a single PID, which can be an issue a you get a 'zombie'
process you have to be the ole' Microsoft bounce of the service.

I have been running a production box(win2k) for about 3 yrs on
Apache2.0.48 and it works.....but we are in the process of moving to the
LAMP platform.....hooray..
