I'll have to suck it up and get eclipse/php going.
Last time I looked it was still in beta.
Does it make any sense to use php on a windows server?
I mean it might be better than asp/.net (which I don't
know about). But why *would* a person code in php on
a windows machine, when they could do it on a linux box,
which is sooooo much more convenient, it seems to me.
(ssh, perl, python, version control, cron, etc).
I'm not trying to insult or start a war, I'm just
curious. Why run php on a windows server *rather* than
linux? I'm perfectly willing to believe there is a
good reason. I just can't imagine what it is.
Sure, I run it on a Windows box for a lot of reasons.
For instance, one of my sites is mostly VBScript/ASP, so it needs Windows. But they wanted some other things (like blogs) which are more readily available in PHP. Additionally, I'm working on a project right now where I need to post data to another site. This is easy with PHP AND CURL; much more difficult in VBScript/ASP. So sometimes I'm passing stuff from a VBScript page to a PHP page, and vice versa. Maybe eventually we'll get it all PHP.
And I run it at home because I duplicate environments. I've got both IIS and Apache on this system; I just start whichever one I need at the time.
Plus I use this machine for things in another business where I pretty much need some MS products to work with customers there.
