View Full Version : IIS & SQL Server vs. Apache & mySQL

11-12-2002, 04:02 PM
I moved this from the Server side, thought this was a better forum.

Well, the company I work for just posted a web job (these are extremly rare for this company) for internal employees. As I've been doing web desing for a while, I am definetly going to jump on this one. Only one problem, I know Apache & mySQL. They are using IIS and SQL Server. So I've got a few questions.

1) How difficult is it to manage these? I would have to assume that since it's MS, it has a nice, simple, GUI. I've configured apache and mySQL from the command line, so I can't see this being to difficult.

2) Does anyone know of good tutorials on IIS and SQL Server?

I'd appreciate any help you can give me. I think If I get the job, I'm going to try my hardest to get them to move to open source, but we'll see.

Thanks again for any and all replies.

1.yeah you shouldnt have a problem with either. I actually really like MSSQL 2000 it has a good gui and pretty easy work with.

For MS SQL Server MSSQL msdn (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/startsql/getstart_4fht.asp)

For your stored procedures(one of the best things in MSSQL) TSQL msdn (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/tsqlref/ts_create_1up1.asp)

For IIS iis (http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/community/centers/iis/default.asp)

The links should get you in the right area.

Good Luck.

Excellent, thanks for the links. I've got them bookmarked and will be studying for the next few days.

Thanks again.

Does anyone know of any support forums on the subject (other than this one) for trouble shooting?
