Got a quick question: Just bought a site with iPage. just one problem? Thanks in advance for any answer or 2. Second question of mine... Will I have any trouble transfering my existing iPage site from Linux to Windows Server 2003? I would that it wouldn't matter what platform it was installed on as long as PHP, mysql, apache, etc. are installed and working correctly..

Another question this brings to mind, will I run into any problems if I transfer servers to one that has a newer version of PHP installed?.

Thanks for any help!..

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could help you..

Comment #1

I'm more comfortable and experienced with Windows Server 2003 that *nix..

Curious as to why people couldn't get it to run on W2k3.....

Comment #2

Iis6 is the animal, with iis5 there is no problem...

Comment #3

I might just stay with *nix then, I don't have the time to troubleshoot problems. At least with *nix, it'll be a lot easier regarding transferring my existing iPage site I would think. Ah well!..

Comment #4

Yes, you are better off. I have been playing with iis6 on my sbs2k3 server and oscommerce but am only doing it internally, there are some glitches. and with my sbs server in calgary and I am in boston, a bit tougher, so dont want things to crash, as I dont get to calgary very often...

Is the windows server 2k3 setup by someone else or are you setting it up? most who have tried on w2k3 have failed, so you would be better off setting up a iPage site to see if you can actually get it to work properly..

You are better off staying on *nix, is there some reason for changing os?..
