Subject RE: [Slightly OT] Simplifying deployment
Date Fri, 22 Oct 2004 16:51:56 GMT
I used to use TC behind Apache but found that a bit flakey under windows
(which was my dev platform), and I found configuring the two servers
separately a bit fiddly.  So when I started a new project I did a bit of
homework on TC standalone, then decided to drop Apache entirely and run TC
standalone.  No complaints so far, and I've yet to see a convincing case for
introducing Apache into the picture (although maybe there are reasons to do
this, in different circumstances to mine).
