    Apache Hosting Control Panel: on Windows

    I've seen people get attacked for asking this, but here I go anyway. Why not? I like Apache on Windows. I have been using it in a production environment for years. I'd love to find a hosting control panel that supports Apache on Windows.

    Please tell me where I can find one...

    Thanks.

    To be honest I don't really know if there is one because Apache with Windows is rather unpopular... If you are going to use Windows, why not use IIS? IIS has far more powerful tools for control and statistics then Apache ever will on Windows and IIS integrates with many core functions in windows, so what's wrong with it?

    To answer your question, there really isn't a control panel that I know of that will use apache as a web server on windows.

    Yeah, as far as I know nearly all control panels for windows use IIS, you might want to take a look at z panel http://www.thezpanel.com i think that may run on apache for windows, but i'm not sure.

    IIS is hard to work I think. I would prefer Apache by a long shot.

    using Apache on Windows, it's a mismatch. Even Apache site suggest not to use it with Windows. Apache is best use with Linux.

    IIS is not that hard to figure it out. when i start windows hosting, i have no clue how IIS work. i bought a book, IIS administrator pocketbook.

    the thing i like about IIS, it's easier to configure gzip comperssion, WSE is a lot easier for me to map scripts that you want to support. No need to mess with Apache configure style (one huge text file, to each of his own i guess) IIS use XML for configureation (easy to backup and restore)

    edit: it's either zpanel or H-shpere but you require a linux box and a windows box

    Plesk uses Apache as far as I believe.
