Will XAMPP work on Windows Server 2003?

Has anybody tested?


XAMPP on Windows Server 2003

Depends on which version of Windows Server.

See my topic re XAMPP on Web Server Edition 2003

Essentially Web Server will be the only version that does not support other "Services" (MySQL server service).

Others should support it just fine. It does work on several versions of XP, W2K, NT as others have reported.

Hope this is what you needed to know.

That is nice to hear.

If you are running Enterprise Edition of Windows server, you must be using XAMPP for a Secure Production web site.

Did you have any issues with Securing XAMPP?

Any Suggestions for those of us about to set up a system that we want to be a secure production web site?

Thanks in Advance

All i'm doing is running my social website (like myspace) and for securing XAMPP, i'm not really sure becuase i don't really have any problem or anything. Plus i'm running behind router and I open only port 80.

I'm also trying to set up XAMPP on 2003 server - I have SE R2 version (currently using the 180-day evaluation CD from Microsoft !)

It won't let me install it in the root directory on the C: drive though so I put it in a subdirectory and ran setup_xampp.bat. I can't seem to access XAMPP at all in IE6 though either from localhost or I just get the IIS under construction page. I've stopped IIS and it's dependent services but it still won't work.

Could someone who's got it working under 2003 server please give me some pointers how I can fix this? (I previously ran it on my laptop under XP with no problems when I was testing sites but it has since died :()

I just want to run some hobby websites with phpbb forums from home and can get it secure enough for that.
