Hi. I will be writing a php site and i am thinking about the hosting server. I have used IIS before with FASTCGI on a php forum and did not have issues. Whoever this was not a high traffic forum, so i could not really see any performance problems it may
came up with. This will be a high traffic site so i want to know if IIS will have problems. Of course i would have used Apache right from the start but i do have much experience on Linux, so i was thinking, if there is no specific advantage then i should save
some time and go with IIS that i know how to work with.
So any suggestions or articles?

IIS is used for many high traffic websites. It will be the applications you run that determine the performance and/or aditionnal configuration needed to optimize it.
There are some good sources on here on iis.net to get you going:

So having a larger php website with high traffic does not make any difference if it's on IIS or Apache?
Even if they have a minimum difference that would mind on the current php site.

I think the detailed configuration of server hardware and software will determine the winner in a heads-on benchmark.
the trick for really high volume handling in first place is optimalised application code!
