Transferring a web application

Hello experts:

I have a Web application that lives on a Windows Server 2003 machine.
Application is slow so the boss bought a more powerful PC but it came with windows 7. The question is, should I remove windows 7 and install win server 2003
or can windows 7 serve as a host for a web application.

Secondly, what are the things I need to be aware of, when transfeering a web application from one PC to another.

Thanks  
Lance

Hi,

First of all Windows 7 is a Desktop Operating System and I don't think it can serve better for your web application. I would suggest to go for Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008 if your hardware supports it.

Secondly please provide more information about your web application. Is it IIS based or are you using Open Standards applications like Apache or any other?

Hi ketanaagia:

Are you suggesting I remove windows 7 and install windows server 2003 or 2008 on that
PC.?

As far as your question, the web application is IIS based.

If I go to the Services and Applications and select IIS, web sites, default web site

the web application is listed there as IDCIP Online. If I click Properties

it points tp a Pre-compiled web folder and within it, the entire compiled project resides.

I have attached a screen shot.
 
Thanks
