Apache Server (wamp) What's needed to go to a "production" server? What settings would I change?
Posted on 2009-04-02
I have a test machine running WAMP.. It's an old machine:
Windows Server 2003 OS
AMD Athlon XP 1.29 ghz
It's my webserver from home, but here's the catch... I want to get everything setup on it first, then when I'm ready, replicate everything onto a production server.
Now, I like WAMP a lot, and I'd love to use it on a production server.. I've messed with the my.ini httpd.conf and vhosts to get it working smoothly. Is there a big downside to using WAMP instead of installing everything separately?
I would like to change my installation to more of a production environment... Is there a certain type of MYSQL setting that I should change that's better quited for this?
For instance.. my server hangs up... it maxes out the CPU 100% when I do a customized zen cart easy-populate export... What I mean by "hangs up" is that I cannot access any webpages served on it while its generating the .txt product export file... I assume if I flip some switches that it will allow for some better "threading"? so that it wouldn't grind to a halt? My hunch is that WAMP assumes it will be in a test environment and not a production environment, so that I is not setup to accommodate multiple users, rather just 1 user primarily?
BTW I already enabled mysql caching.
