Subject [users@httpd] RE: Apache/2.0.55 (Win32) PHP/5.1.1 problem
Date Fri, 03 Nov 2006 09:06:58 GMT

I use old Apache because of PHP docs say so (as far as I remember).
PHP does do (lots of) DB operations but no transactions ( :) ) on MSSQL but
the queries are optimized for good performance (and if no errors, pages
loads 0.01 to 2 secs (there are heavy queries)). (It is a firm intranet site
for logistic management.)
Win32 is Windows Server 2003 with latest service packs and resources
priorised to services.
Total hourly hit count is about 7,000, the most downloads are .php (circa
90%) and the rest are images and Excel sheets. About 70% are LAN and 30% WAN
requests (which means network load can not be an issue).
The "iron" is a Dell server machine, Intel Xeon 3,06GHz, 2GB RAM and SATA
hard drives (weekly defragmented).
