WINDOWS WEB SERVER CONFIGURATION

Hi All,

I want to setup a web server.

1. Windows Server 2008.
2. ASP .NET 3.5
3. Silverlight 4/5.
4. SQL 2008.
5. Crystal Report 2008.

My questions :

1. Anything missing here ?
2. Which point could use free version ?

Thank you.

asp.net is a framework included in windows server 2008 R2 installation, so once you buy windows server, you have it.
silverlight is optional, but also part of windows, no purchase is necessary.
Crystal reports is 3rd party software from SAP, it comes with 30days trial, but I don't think it has any free edition

Hi,

hard to say if something is missing or not. It depends on for what exactly the webserver will be used for.
If you don't expect heavy load on the SQL database, you can use the SQL Express edition, which is free (limit max. 10GB filesize per database for SQL Express 2008 R2, lack of agent service (automatization of SQL tasks), the sqlserver is able to use only one physical CPU and max. 1GB RAM).

Since this is  web server and supposed will be served as a hosting provider.

What should I need more ?

Unable to predict, it depends on what your customers will require.
Generally, the described should be okay.
