*edit-This def needs cliffs - (can I run a VMWare lamp server on top of an MSVS Windows VPS without problems?) I've got a Windows VPS running 2 E-Commerce sites (+ about 15 other sites which don't get enough traffic to even mention). Php is installed and running but for various reasons (one being that we're stuck on php 4 since it's bundled w/ plesk and upgrading php (same deal w/ mysql) is known to cause all kinds of major problems w/ plesk ). It'd be nice to have a bare bones lamp server for the few things we use php for. So I'm wondering if I could get away w/ just throwing a vmware lamp server on the vps? There's plenty of ip's to spare (8), only 2 need to be dedicated for SSL certs. Manually specify the ip's for iis to bind to, DL vm client and config lamp and I'm basically good to go right? My only concern really is if VMWare and MSVS virtualization will play together nicely. I don't really see why they wouldn't, but figured I better ask 1st on that one. We're currently using a fraction of our available resources so there should be plenty available for this. Specs on VPS -Both E-Commerce sites on classic asp and mysql, both combined probably average only 1-1.5 million page views per month. -1gig guaranteed ram -50gig disk -MSVS virtualization -(see pic below) Also, any recommendations on baseline specs (ram, disk space) required to run a basic lamp server? Just need to run a few of your average open source php apps, none of which currently get any significant traffic) Any other concerns that I'm missing here? Thanks!
