I posted this on this thread, cause I am a newbie. I tried to find info in this forum and in google but don't know how to direct my query. Please instruct me to move this thread to a particular forum if necessary.
I wish migrating a standalone vb6 solution to a PHP/MySQL platform. The idea is to have this new platform run locally at each client site. Should I WAMP? (I learned about LAMP by querying this forum, and had a bunch of fun creating a solution on the LAMP setup). Should I move to a LAMP environment? Will that result in my customers having to replace hardware? My client installation requires only PCs, no servers and do not want to require servers for implementations because of the high cost. So basically...
I wish to design and build a client site installation for hosting a PHP/MySQL based solution without requiring an actual server device. Any suggestions?
If its already a VB6 solution and its running on regular hardware,.. then Linux will be able to run it on the same hardware.
I run an entire OpenStack CLOUD on a laptop.
Lamp is nice. But a lot of people are moving to Nginx for their webserver.
An LNMP stack. If you are interested. Also, utilize Memcached and Varnish if you can. And dont use Mysql if you can help it. Use MariaDB the opensource/non-crazy license rewrite of Mysql. Its a drop in replacement most of the time.
So thats an LNMMPV stack now.
