    Hi all,

    I have this Winserver2008 tower here as an Email/File server. I created a virtual XP Pro with an apache/php/Mysql setup on it. I put the corporate website on it as well as the corporate php database to be accessed by about 10 employees concurrently.

    Maneuvering through the website outside the domain is a little slow, and I am worried once this database goes into production, it will be even slower, if not lockout entirely. I am wondering if it was better to use vmware instead of virtualbox for performance in this case.

    I did allot more memory to the virtual environment, looks like it helped a little, but still not "snappy" as much as I would like it be.

    The hardware is a quadcore AMD 2.4 CPU/4gigDDR2 ram.

    Your thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Heeter

    Why are you planning on running a production website/database from windows XP? You're aware that XP is license limited to 10 concurrent computer/device connections, right? While I don't believe it will limit you from a technical perspective, it is in the EULA licensing..
