Hosting ASP.NET 4.0 on IIS6 (2003) vs IIS7 (2008)
Posted on 2010-09-09
Is there any disadvantage to hosting asp.net 4.0 Web apps on a 2003 server with IIS6?
It seems that all commercial hosting providers are offering 2008 IIS7 for the .net 4.0 sites, however we will be hosting our web sites internally on our own web server (currently 2003 IIS6) and my manager is keen for me to justify the cost of upgrading to 2008 IIS7.
So I really want to understand whether it can be justified and why, we currently connect to sql which is on a 2003 server and that is unlikely to be upgraded in the forseeable future - so this should be taken into consideration.
If I have omitted a vital piece of info do please ask, many thanks in advance for the advice.
