Currently I am using windows server to host my site. I used Apache (XAMPP) as web service instead of IIS. Also this server connected to our oracle server running win2003 and with some application created using php. All html files are generated using MS Frontpage. All are done by myself.

I have made some reading and research and found that UNIX and linux is better for web hosting especially on performance and reliability than Windows.

So now, since we have one Unix server, I want to configure this as my web server. The unix specification are as follow :

Sun Sparc Enterprise T5220 Server
4 core 1.2ghz ultrasparc 2 processor
4GB FBDIMM memory
with solaris 10 and Java enterprise system software

The question is :
How to configure my unix to run similar services as my Windows server ?
Also, for web page development, can I still use MS Frontpage and then just transfer all files to UNIX htdoc? I still prefer to retain all softwares that I used in w2003 server.

Also, Is there Antivirus software for Unix ?
