I know how to make database-driven web sites using Windows servers, Access, IIS, and ASP.
I want to learn how to do the same using Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP, and... whatever you use instead of Access.
Where do I start?
I have been looking at changing my web development focus from Windows/ASP/.NET to LAMP(Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Python/Perl) because my gut is telling me that this is where things are going. Oh, Java should be in there as well.
What's the skinny on LAMP in the real world (Netcraft surveys
aside)? Is it difficult to change to LAMP/Java? Is the open source thing really sticking?
(1) Is there a significant difference between running Linux on Opterons vs. Xeons? Is one clearly better? For MySQL? For Apache/PHP?
(2) Ever hosted with Cogentco
? Is there anyone else with prices like that? (100Mbps at $1000/month)
(3) What's your favorite server vendor for typical 2-way 1U systems? (Looking at Dell, IBM, Penguin
; where does Google buy them again?)
