I’ve not collected the PC from the tech team which I intend to turn into the server. I’m having the debate as to go LAMP or WAMP.
LAMP is the Linux, Apache, MySQL, PhP route with Ubuntu server edition or to got the WAMP, Windows, Apache etc. route.
I’ve got the security doc for Linux servers from David so I now know what the requirements for the build are, it shouldn’t be too onerous as it’s an internal and not external facing server.
I’m leaning towards LAMP as I think the performance will be better, but I’ll think about it more later.
I downloaded Ubuntu Server 6.06 LTS last night, the 450mb file took 8 minutes to download.
