On Planet PHP, I see a lot of postings about PHP the language, and applications written in PHP, but not a lot about the runtime environment that PHP needs and can take advantage of. Is anyone interested in a series of posts about server architectures – not just LAMP vs WIMP vs WISP (Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP, Windows/IIS/MySQL/PHP, and Windows/IIS/SQL Server/PHP) – but also about shared hosting vs dedicated hosting vs server farms vs active-active, active-passive clusters?
If you are interested, leave a comment on my blog to let me know. If there’s enough interest, I’ll write up a few articles about this and publish them on my blog. If there’s anything in particular you’d like to see covered, and explained in more detail, let me know!
(One of the things I do is design hosting solutions for our customers. Not the mega-solutions that folks like Rasmus gets to work on, but the smaller – and way more common – solutions needed for small to medium-size websites here in the UK).22 comments »
