beginning_php thread: WebServers


Message #1 by "Peter Simard" <pasimard@v...> on Mon, 9 Jul 2001 05:24:33
I've noticed many people have a lot of trouble etting up their  servers to 

serve PHP pages.  As an alternative, there is a webserver, written in PHP 

called BadBlue.  It's free from the company website, www.badblue.com, and, 

at least on Windows, installs and is up and running in about 2 minutes.  



The setup documentation is clear and straight forward.  If the 

unzip/install procedure falters it still takes only minutes to be up and 

running.  It really is easy.  



For people just getting there feet wet with PHP it might be an 

alternative.  Just a thought.  (And no I don't work for these guys, but I 

was amazed at how easy it was to set up).

Does anybody have experience with PHP/MySQL database scripting on that

server?



Seems like a very good alternative for intranets.

Yes, I do , In my "day" job, I have integrated our shops' web site with

ASP/MS access/MS Sql , and PHP/MySql on Windows 2000 server. And on my home

based business site, I use PHP/MYSql exlusivly on Win NT 4 and Mandrake

linux.

i neglected to mention that the BadBlue server is also designed as a Peer 

to Peer server, great for project collaboration.



I've not noticed any problems connecting to MySQL, but I've only tested 

connectivity and a few scripts.
