Hello,

First off I wanted to say that the entire Geeklog system looks really, really good. I'm the new webmaster for a few corporations and businesses, and figured instead of spending hours upon hours Banging your head coding for what will end up being very clean, and professional looking sites. I would look around and see if there was an easier way. After all time = Just my two cents . And I discovered Geeklog.... Cool

My main concern so far, (I don't have the access info yet for the hosting) is thus. Blah Blah Blah Blah ...

I checked out the forums for posts about Geeklog + GoDaddy. I did find that there apparently is basically just a one click installation step for Linux. My Question basically is, does anyone know if there is the same support for Windows + Geeklog, on the GoDaddy systems.


Thanks much,
EidolonNetCorp

I guess that its more that most of us wouldn't want to be caught directly facing the internet with a windows box. Most service providers build linux systems - installing Apache, MySQL and just about about anything else using Fantistico is so easy that its almost laughable. Windows is doable, but most ISPs don't want to get the Redmond RollerCoaster where outages are required every month to patch all the holes in the O/S. I mean how many times and places can you possibly patch buffer underflows and overflows? This is probably the only scenario where windows is in the minority. Most of the scripts and programs are developed for Linux, not Windows. If you were to use Windows, I would stick with Server 2003 as the O/S.

i haven't looked into godaddy hosting since they're so expensive... however I imagine that they're using Fantastico which has geeklog as one of the install scripts...

But even if they don't have one click installs for geeklog it only takes about 5-10 minutes to get a base install up and running manually.

Sorry - I didn't mean it that way. I think your first guess was fairly accurate - no one is using GoDaddy and windows and geeklog so they couldn't answer your question from experience. That's not a knock on you. or windows. I support and manage 225 windows 2000 enterprise servers myself, but none of them are web facing. All of my sites are hosted all over North America on various web hosts - all of which are Linux. Don't take the silence as a bad thing - its as much an answer as any - it speaks volumes of the lack of windows based Geeklogs. However , I do use Geeklog on windows for intranet portals - works great and there is an easy install using Aeonserve - http://aeonserv.com/ - you can install Apache, MySQL, PHP and Geeklog in one easy install.
