    Win Server with IIS and SQL

    Hi everyone. This is my first post and I have to say this is one great resource for newbies just looking into more advanced hosting. My question is..

    What do you think of having both the IIS and SQL run on the same server? Is this a common practice.

    Thanks,
    Alvin

    IIS is not the same thing as SQL.

    IIS- Web Server (basicaly HTTP and ASP exicuter)
    SQL- Database System

    Sure, put both of them on the same server. But make sure that your server has suffecient Hard Drive and RAM space. If you have less than 500mb and you expect to have heavy traffic, you will run into issues. My server only came with 128mb of RAM and I could not even support 20 people on phpBB! I had to do major upgrades.

    Yes, I know it is not the same. That is why I asked if people have had issues having both of them installed on the same server.

    I have always been taught that it is good to seperate the web and sql so it is not on the same machine. Since I am on a budget I was checking to see if it is common for people to put it together anyways.

    And I was thinking of a Intel 2.8+ with 1gb of ram for the server.

    IMHO
    Id rather suggest not to put them on the same server. Both eats up a lot of mem/cpu usage.

    Alvinks, SQL Server is a resource intensive app and is better suited on a seperate server. It will work but its not advisable. Not just performance-wise but seperating them will also come handy in disaster recovery situations.
