heres the deal
i am currently developing a webiste for a company and
i am using a unix server
the website contains a bit of html, some images and the following
texts and tests.
The thing with the texts is that there will be approximately 1000+
texts on the server and each text has 2 images
they are stoed in
/texts and /imgs
in /texts for example i might have 150320001.txt
(ie daydaymonthmonthyearyearyearyearuniquenumber.txt so that
every text has a unique name)
and in /imgs i might have 150320001a.jpg and 150320001b.jpg
i have written software to upload these texts and related images and they are all inserted into the relevant directories
i have also written the html so that when a new text is loaded all the users have to do is click a button and they see the text and the two images all on one nice page
The tests are stored in a directory /tests
and they follow a similar layout to the texts in that
each test has a unique name
these tests are "fill in the gaps" and "rearrange the sentences"
and stuff like that
im getting to the question now ;)
id like to know if i should continue development on the unix server
or move to asps on a pc?
the thing is i use perl on the unix server and am quite familiar with it.
What would the advantages of a unix server be over a pc for purely "web development" of this kind.
Is there the facility to upload texts onto a "pc website/website hosted on a pc" (sorry dont know the correct term)
are unix servers that much more reliable than pcs?
if a pc cost $2000 and unix server cost $12500 which would
do pcs crash all the time whereas unix servers dont?
would it be a waste of a server to just have it as a web site
and place to store texts and tests?
sorry for all the questions......
hope someone can help......
