Well, I have been attempting a platform change on my site. I had a nice, clean system running Windows Server 2003 and wanted to test the performance of the site with the PHP-based Gallery software and MovableType. Unfortunately, the project did not end well. The perfornamce was so bad, I had to give up. I could not get PHP to run quickly at all. Although, I may run one more test with a different version of the PHP script processor – instead of ISAPI, I’ll run it with CGI.
Of course, if I solve that problem there’s still the dificulty I have making MovableType work on Windows. I’d hate to have to change Blog programs mid-stream.
Well, I’ll let you know what happens.
