Windows 2008 Versus Windows 2003 Server

May 26, 2009

With Windows 2003 server, there are comprehensive lists of what you need to do to secure the server before use. For Windows 2008, I wonder is there such a list? Or is it true as what I heard from Microsoft that it is already secured out of the box?

Anyone has any resources on the hardening or preparation of 2008 for server hosting uses?

Is Windows 2008 Slower Than Windows 2003

May 8, 2008

I'm making a reasonably uninformed comparison here. Since Windows Vista is noted to be more resource intensive and slower than Win XP, are we right in assuming that Windows 2008 is slower than Windows 2003?

For instance, with two boxes with an identical hardware setup but the two different server OSes, will the same application like, say MySQL run slower on the Win 2008 machine?

Buffering With Windows Media Services

Jul 7, 2009

I just took my first steps into Windows Media Services but I have some problems with the buffering of the stream.

I send from Expression Encoder 2 SP1 to my publishing point on my Windows Media Server.

But when the quality of the video is too high, I get some buffering problems when I'm watching the streamed video with my Windows Media Player. After looking 5 seconds to the stream, the windows media player stops with playing and in the left bottom corner I see the text "buffering". After 3 seconds buffering, the player goes further for a next of 5 seconds of playing and it continously does this.

Windows 2003 And 2008 Web

Jan 9, 2009

i wanted to buy a dedicated server and when i had questions about 2003 web, i talked to hivelocity live support and i think it was dave who told me that Windows 2003 web has a restriction for mysql which was 512 KB. I myself is planning to own a gameserver that uses java and mysql and i know for sure uses much much more space than 512 KB. Is this true that 2003 restricts the size of your DB and when your DB reaches 512 kb, it can no longer be used? Also, is the windows 2008 web licensing fee the same as windows 2003 web?

Media Server Running Windows Server 2003 Std: Yes Or No

Jul 10, 2007

Most people probably run Linux on their media servers, but since I don't know much about Linux and the media server we have is unmanaged, I was wondering how you guys feel about running Windows Server 2003 Std on a media server instead of Linux. We'll only be using the server to host Flash video files (.flv) and we'll be serving those vids on websites hosted on other servers, resulting in approx. 50,000-100,000 media views per day (filesizes range from approx. 5MB to 10MB). We don't want to run Windows Media Services, just a Web server (IIS6) and have the Flash video players on the external websites take care of the streaming/downloading part.

Windows Xp Rather Than Windows Server 2003?

Oct 30, 2008

Is there hosting that use windows xp rather than windows server 2003? What is the advantage of using windows server2003 anyway?

Most of the time I just need to run some programs that need huge bandwidth. If I want to host sites, I'll just use xamp.

I think windows xp license is cheaper.

Windows Media Relays

Mar 18, 2008

I was wondering if anyone could help me out with a Windows Media Relay. For example, if I have two streams with two different companies. Once stream A is filled up then it will forward to stream B. Or even distribute or just randomly to stream A or B.

I have searched and searched, but nothing seems to work.

Windows Media Server

Apr 25, 2009

my Hosting service (Hostway) offered Windows Media Server at the time. I wanted visitors to have the ability to quickly stream .wma's, so I went for the cost.

now...I'm unemployed; & money is real, I was thinking of dropping Hostway...going over to GoDaddy; & switching my means of musical delivery to .mp3's.


1) How much slower is mp3 streaming from a conventional server than .wma from a dedicated server?

2) Is there a way to speed it (mp3) up (save decreasing file size)?

3) Will .wma's stream without the dedicated server; & if is that implemented?

I really need to save money in this economy...but I don't want my listeners to suffer. Is that possible?

PHP And MYSQL On Windows 2008

May 31, 2009

I am about to move my site to a dedicated server. My current site is running on PHP and MYSQL on a Linux box (shared host), but I am familiar with Windows/IIS so I decide to run the site on Windows 2008 instead of Linux on a deciated server.

Before I begin to move, I would like to ask for your experience. Have anyone here ever tried PHP/MySQL on Windows server in production environment? What are the limitations (and/or performance issues) when running PHP/MySQL on Windows?

Who Not Any Windows Server 2008 VPS

Jul 4, 2008

I've started to use Plesk 8.4 on Windows Server 2008 at work, and totally love it. The IIS7-native MS rewrite engine works pretty good. It's a dedicated box.

For my own hosting, I use either shared/reseller or VPS. Looking around, it seems every VPS is still on Windows Server 2003 and IIS6.

I took a look at the Parallels site, but came up empty. Is Server 2008 not supported by Virtuozzo yet? Is that what everybody's waiting for? If that's the case, any news/rumors on when it may be supported? IIS7 is a huge leap over IIS6, in terms of PHP and the Rewrite (plus a few other things, though not as important to me).

Too bad IIS7 won't be on Server 2003.

Windows Server 2008

Jul 15, 2008

With Windows client OS (e.g. Vista), it's always good practice to hold upgrading till the first service pack comes out. How true is this for Windows Server software? We're going to upgrade some Windows servers and would like to know if we should stick to Win Server 2003 or go ahead and get 2008?
