Subject [users@httpd] apache on windows
Date Fri, 12 Mar 2010 21:59:22 GMT
Can anyone out there tell me if is workable or not to install Apache(most current version)
on a Windows Web server?
I am trying to pick up the pieces of a not-so-clean website installation.

(Bear with me please- to say I am green is an understatement. More like not sprouted yet!)

Here is what I have:
Website was built on Linux box using php. Site was moved to Windows Web server box with IIS,
Mysql, PHP.
New webdesigner said it did not "work" right, due to transition from Linux to Windows.
They removed Mysql & PHP, turned off IIS, and installed Xampp. (bad idea for production)
Still numerous problems. (They are off the project now.)

Last night I migrated website to virtual server with Standard edition (not webserver) of Windows
server, with Xampp, and everything seems to work correctly.
I am going to install full versions of Apache, Mysql, and PHP.
Before I go thru all that, I want to find out, if possible, if it is a compatibility issue
with webserver version, or just screwed up install due to too many hands in cookie jar.
