What is the best sytem for web hosting
 
Hi Imar,

Reading chapter 18 (Deplyoing Your Web Site), you have provided many choices for the web server.

Which combination of the system do you think is the best(most stable)? (Window Server 2003 and SQL Server 2005, Window Server 2008 and SQL 2005, Window Server 2008 and SQL 2008, or else??? )

Thanks

Given how "green" the 2008 versions of both windows and SQL server are, you would be best to go with the stable and well established server 2003 and SQL 2005. I have several production sites running on those platforms and they are solid.

A lot of folks follow the "after service pack 1" philosophy for upgrading. Let the RTM into the wild for a bit, let microsoft work out the issues and release the first SP. Then it should be suitable for production use.

While I agree with Peter's advice, I think you'll find that both Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 are very stable products. I have many sites running on this platform without any problems.

Cheers,

Imar

Hi Imar,

I am developing my program using VDS EXPRESS 2008, with back end SQL 2005.

Do you think it's backward compatibility with VDS 2005? (The production server running .NET 2.* with SQL 2005)

Thanks,

Melania

What is "VDS Express"?

If you mean Visual Web Developer Express, then: You can build web sites in VS 2008 that target only ASP.NET 2.0. You can specify this in the project settings. However, I'm not sure if this applies to the express version. That said, ASP.NET 3.5 still technically runs on ASP.NET 2.0 runtime. However, if you use .NET classes that come from a framework higher than 2.0 (such as Linq) then the host needs to have 3.5 installed to support it. So I think technically, you could build a site in 2008 that might run OK on a pure 2.0 host. Sorry for the ambiguous answer, that's what you get with Microsoft platforms. :-/

Peter is right; you can target 2.0 as well using VWD. Once you choose 2.0, VWD stops you from using 3.5 specific features like LINQ.

You can still use some of the new .NET 3.5 features, like automatically implemented properties in C#.

Obviously, upgrading the host to 3.5 (if possible) gives you the most flexibility.

Hi Peter and Imar:

How to build the project to target .NET 2.0 like what Peter has sugested?

Thanks,

Melania

Hi Imar and Peter,

I found it, you have this option as well in Visual Web Deveolpment STudio Express 2008. I found that beside Linq you can't used AJAX as well.

Thanks,

Melania


Imar December 5th, 2008 03:47 PM

You can use AJAX, but you need to download and install (on the server as well) the AJAX framework for .NET 2.0: http://www.asp.net/ajax/

Cheers,

Imar
