Posted 31 Mar 2015Yes I ran the Apache and Windows sql servers together, all I had to do is switch ports on one of them. Yes the project is going to be a challenge, and as long as I keep it in the windows environment I'll have IT support. They already have a guy assigned to work with me and yes I'll have complete control of the project. Pretty scary but impossible challenges don't phase me at all.
Posted 31 Mar 2015No I was just gonna run them both as HTTP servers, not at the same time. Well the IT department rethought their original plan and decided to give me total control of it. Luckily its not gonna roll out for another 6 - 9 months so it gives me time to learn SharePoint. Plus the SharePoint developer is going to work with me step by step. One of those "be careful what you wish for" moments. Especially since this huge project is gonna get alot bigger as I found out R&D and Engineering want to have input in it. I'm about to become busier than a one armed paper hanger.
Posted 31 Mar 2015Thank you Kathy for the good advice. I installed XAMPP last night and Drupal to manage my project (now on my home computer). I may even try nginx on my Linux partition. Funny when someone does this to you it ramps your motivation up exponentially.
Posted 28 Mar 2015Thanks ciper i will do that on my work PC
Posted 28 Mar 2015Thanks for all the advice guys. In researching this, learning about CMS systems, led me to contact IT. Well they are certainly going the sharepoint route. They already hired an admin to set it up and run it. They have all my frameworks I build and are gonna load it in Sharepoint. So essentially I came up with a really great idea, and they just stole it. It was kinda naive of me to undertake something like this without knowing (really) how in the real world its implemented. Lesson learned.
BTW I'm not giving up on the field, I enjoy it too darn much. Gonna get this Microsoft crap off my home PC and install XAMPP and learn PHP.
