Apache verus IIS
Posted on 2004-08-06
I am deciding on whether to use Apache or IIS for our companies website. Basically an electronic brochure. No web apps
or such at this point. I know IIS very well and Frontpage but I was thinking Apache and a Linux solution to learn and implement for security. I am planning on a DMZ to put the web box in. Can I use Frontpage for dev and use Apache to host?
Also if so what should I use for the OS? I am getting a low end Poweredge from Dell for the box. We currently have 3 Dell servers in the domain so far. Company is about 4 weeks old. I was thinking RedHat maybe. I know the cost for Win2003 Web Edition is an additional 350 bucks on top of the hardware. Would the Linux solution be cheaper? I want to use something Dell will support.
