    What web platform would you recommend for running Silverstrip? Link to this post

    I'm currently running IIS5.1 on my Windows XP development machine. And it's been highly frustrating getting Silverstrip working.

    But some of the documentation and so on implies that Apache may be a more "native" webserver to run Silverstrip on.

    What is your opinion? Would I be better to run Apache?

    Especially since I would like to run sub sites... And get the URL rewrite working...

    Thanks.

    Since you are on a windows xp machine I recommend wamp http://www.wampserver.com/en/ or xampp (both apache) for developing with silverstripe. Both of those are popular so SS is usually well tested on those platforms and they include all the mods which make out of the box setting up much more straight forward. Or try upgrading to IIS7.0 - runs alot more stable on that compared to 5.1.

    I'll give WAMP a go...

    I would upgrade to IIS7 but I can't find any way to upgrade. As far as I can see, IIS7 is only available on Windows Server 2008. And I think similar for IIS 6. So it looks like since MS have decided to not allow us to upgrade IIS on XP then I guess another, better web server is the goer. Probably a good idea in any case since I'm starting to need to do things that IIS on XP just can't do.

    Thanks.
