Subject RE: [firebird-php] any one use sohlius web host?

Strange, I find my Win2003 Server (350MHz) better than my win2000 server
(1GHz), both are improved using isapi module over the cgi but neither are
anywhere near as good as my old 200MHz linux box.
The differences are stark especially after a period of no use and measuring
the time taken to deliver the first page. - With a site getting good traffic
(constant hits) performance is good on all but for low traffic sites the Win
environment is dreadful to first kick in.

Windows are also ok, as long as you don't use Win2003, and you use PHP
as CGI (php.exe) and not as server module (.dll). Well, at least that's
my experience. I do run all my servers on Linux now, since it much
easier to administer remotely.

If you run some not so widely used server (keyfocus?), it's a high
chance you can only run it as CGI, since .dll files are server-specific
(bind to the server API).
