A. How do you know that? (I'm not asking if it is true or not)

B. You aren't running IIS at all, correct?

C. is it 'your server' or a provider's server on whihc you have a virtual server?

I have around 50 users trying to access an intranet

B. You aren't running IIS at all, correct?
No, i´m not using IIS just xampp

C. is it 'your server' or a provider's server on whihc you have a virtual server?
Its local server on a lan, but it is not accessible from internet

OK Good answers.

I'm guessing from your response, the answer is 'my server craps out after the 20th user attachs'

What are the errors generated?

Are the users all trying to run HTTP sessions?

"What are they attempting to do?"

Do you have them authenticating in any way?

Is your server multi-homed?

What other things is the server tasked to?

What is the specific reason/thing you installed XAMPP to achieve?

Enough questions? :mrgreen: (I have more) LOL

Thanks a lot,

I'm guessing from your response, the answer is 'my server craps out after the 20th user attachs'
>Yes could be hahaha :D

What are the errors generated?
>It is silent error without register, just when 20 user try to login, its session is lost.

Are the users all trying to run HTTP sessions?
>No, just programmatic sessions on the system

"What are they attempting to do?"
>The users are trying to login

Do you have them authenticating in any way?
>Yes, the system has a login module.
>Some source code
>
>session_start();
>
>------
>// When users loggin its some like
>$_SESSION[$this->appId]=1;


Is your server multi-homed?
> No, how could i do it?, do you have a link to learn some about :mrgreen:

What other things are the server tasked to?
> Its dedicated as web server, could be run some .net applications asp, aspx but independent of xampp

What is the specific reason/thing you installed XAMPP to achieve?
Im not shure if my deploy is rigth, but i install xampp as web server to dispatch my web application

Enough questions? :mrgreen: (I have more) LOL
Sure there are very interesting thanke

Ok

do you have PHP error logging enabled?, If so check the log. If not, enable it.

viewtopic.php?f=16&t=40799

50 users trying to run applications concurrently would be pretty a substantial load. This may not be directly an Apache server or PHP issue, it could be TCP/IP issue with windows server. How fat is the pipe these users are sitting on? Fast Ethernet or Gigabit?.

This is a topic with good info. http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-re ... 63859.html

How many NICS are in the machine? and what are they tasked to?

Windows Server is optimized for IIS, and I have no idea if Apache could benefit from load balancing if that turns out to be the issue.

Why did you decide XAMPP w/Apache was the best web server option for your applications?

FInding out what the errors are is the key here.

Good Luck
