Hi,

Would I get better performance running Apache on Windows 2003 32 bit or 64 bit?

I'm running Dual Xeon 5420 Processors.

How many websites do you intend to host?  If you are only hosting a few sites, the performance will be completely negligible.  I would base your decision on what other software you will be running and it's 64bit compatibility.

Have you considered setting up a Linux server for this?

There can be mixed feelings on this issue.  If you need seperate instances of each in isolated memory spaces, 64 would be better.  However, because of limitations of 64bit programs, 32bit software would be more efficient.

I don't really know what I need. I guess I'll just try it out and see what happens.

Thanks for the help

If my solutions needs more information, then by all means I will still try to help you out..  Explain in more detail what you intend to use this server for.   Are you going to be using more database functions, php, html, or what.  I know it's easy to say all of the above, but if there is going to be more of a demand on one than the other the server can be more accurately setup.

In a nutshell, if you intend to do more web and less database, the 64 bit version with 64bit apache would be better.  If you are going to do more database functions, 32bit all the way.
