I am starting this thread becuse I am about to do an Linux-Apache-MySql-PHP installation for someone to use to run a production application. I have in the past used WAMPP for development and think it is great. However as part of my preparation for the production environment I have been considering if installing XAMPP on the production server would be an option.
After reading different articles on the Internet it seems to be very mixed opinions of wether XAMPP is ok to be used in a production environment or not. Some claim they have several successful production installations whilst others claims that this is a big no no.
For this reason if you have any opinions on the points below please join the discussion and I hope this thread can be useful for everyone else considering using XAMPP in a production environment:
- Why XAMPP is a good alternative to use in production
- On the other hand, Why XAMPP should NOT be used in a production environment.
- If used what tweaking is mandatory, recommended or needs to be tweaked depending on the environment itself.
- What would be the best alternative rather that using XAMPP.
For any advise, recommodation, views, points or strong opinions and beliefs etc please join the thread!
