PHP Web Portal...need advice!

P: n/a
Dear all,

(1)Is it possible to host PHP-based Web Portal + MySQL Database (e.g.
PHPNuke) on MS Windows System? If yes which server software I need?
(2)Compare PHP over JSP/ASP/CGI in performance/memory
usage/others...which one is the best for a web portal targetted around
few thousand concurrent users? Any article have detail comparisions are
welcomed.
(3)What is the function of SOAP?

PS: Would anyone please introduces some sample flow-diagram of
web-portal architecture of a PHP system with SQL database?

Many thanks

Get EasyPHP from http://www.easyphp.org/ (it's a local server where you can
test any PHP based site, including PHPNuke) there is also a
instalation/setup guide there as long as a Forum :)

It's easy :)

We are testing PHP-Nuke on Win2000 with IIS and PHP, connecting to a
MySQL db on a linux box, in anticipation of using this same
configuration at our ISP. There have been no problems so far.
Everything tested works fine. The same thing is true of Win98,
Apache, PHP and MySQL all running on the same box. PHPNuke claims to
be database independent, but it is difficult to set up because the
database is difficult to run in anything except MySQL.

Of course, we are planning on just 2-3 concurrent users out of 1400
members. If you plan on a few thousand concurrent connections why
wouldn't you use the Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP configuration that it is
designed for?

The biggest problem is getting information. The fragmented PHPNuke
forums are not a good source of information, and the is no USENET
group devoted to the topic (except one in french). It seems to me
that discussions of PHPNuke are not appreciated here.

Yes.

PHP will work under almost any popular HTTP server, which means
that either IIS or Apache would suffice. Obviously, you are
going to need MySQL. Also, since you implied production
environment, you might also want to look into Zend WinEnabler:

There is no such thing as "the best scripting environment".
It all depends on your choices of hardware, operating system,
and database engine, as well as the configuration of the
scripting engine.
(3) What is the function of SOAP?


To allow disparate programs to exchange messages in XML.

Cheers,

I develop phpnuke sites on Windows (apache, mysql), and then deploy to
linux remote hosts.

If you donít donít do fancy stuff (e.g. specific os calls), everything
works the same.
