It's okay to use xampp in a dedicated server?

Postby ntldr » 27. January 2012 19:13

Hi!, for the past months I've been forking on a site(php), so for the tests and everything i use xampp. Ok the thing is that i just rent a dedicated server, but since I'm new to this(using a dedicated server) i was wondering, if it would work?, can i expect some problems? or everything it's just going to be fine.

Thank You for your answers.

Not recommended as outlined in this section of the readme_en.txt file found in the xampp installation folder:
A matter of security (A MUST READ!)

Is your dedicated server running Linux or Windows Server???

If its running Linux, its quite likely those who set it up already installed a 'LAMP' stack (Linux,Apache,MySQL, PHP or Perl). You would have had to disabled all that to run XAMMP.

If its running Windows Server 2003 or 2008, it may be configured for IIS rather than Apache. Again you should ask, they may be amenable to doing the setup for you if Apache/PHP/MySQL is not installed.

Good Luck with your project.
