  • Intalling a php site in IIS, performance?

    Jul 14, 2014 04:12 AM|sapator|LINK

    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?
    Thanks.

    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.

    Thanks.

    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!
