running web server


I dont know if this is the appropriate forum or not but.....

In "the other" operating system I run a mail and webserver. I'd like to run it here too since I spend more time in Linux. I have a few questions:

1. Can I use the inetpub dir from there on linux?
2. Do I have to mount the directory? (to keep from having two locations, that way when i edit/update pages, I only do it once)
3. will it matter if that is iis and this would be run on apache?

The windows partitions are of fat32 and if need be i would make another small partition for a place to share files between both OS's

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please be gentle, I'm a

Here are a few answers

1. Does the site/pages use ASP (VBscript or JavaScript) in any form? If it uses ASP, not easily, possibly quite costly.
2. No I think monting the drive at boot would be just fine. Use apache httpd.conf to point to directory structure.
3. Only if you use VBScript/JavaScript-based ASP.

Just to clarify you can use ASP with Apache using Chilisoft or other package but I can't find a free download except their demo version. I would have settled for an older version as well!

Hope this helps,

yeah, I use PHP extensively, but only using Apache2 servers. One on XP and one on RH.
I leave IIS for ASP and Tomcat for JSP. Keeps from getting things complicated when running 3 at once!
