yeah but when was the last time MSN was hammered by millions of people all at once? msn is more than one site, i wouldn't expect a huge corp like
microsoft to design crappy server clusters.
also ATS has never been hammered by millions of people either.
load might be an issue too, but apache is one of the most robust webservers out there it's why a lot of websites use it and it has the most market
No apache is the common because it is free. The server that is, i.e the executable called "apache.exe", it is a part of Unix and Linux; Linux is a
free operating system. And, all those people are paying to use free software.
The last time MSN was hammered by millions: prolly already today...several times. And I expect nothing less than what Microsoft does (in this regard)
from the government.
IIS is okay but you need to lock it down, it has so much stuff open in comparison to apache. you really need to go look apache up, you really don't
seem to know much about it anymore.
when did you use it? 1997?
No actually around 2000, but that's not the point. Point is I determined then that Apache was inadequate, left it in the dust and never looked back.
Lock down IIS??? what do you think you are talking about? IIS is plenty secure, as secure as Apache. Or maybe you are just blowing smoke.
Tell me...does Apache support [I]any[/I] high level languages yet?
The point I was trying to make was that the issues were not caused by the traffic, but rather by the basic architecture of the web-application. The
system obviously was not set up to handle the kind of traffic it saw, causing the load to become unbalanced, and thus the so-called "crash". And
that, IS on the Engineers that built it; Good work guys!
