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..

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
