Drupal on Windows - WAMP?

melbs's picture

I'm not sure if there is a separate group for this type of question but what environment on windows are you guys running? Are you using a program like WAMP? Are you even using mysql, apache? I'd just like to get a feel for what specific environment on windows drupal runs best on? And if there are any warnings when using WAMP?

Also, would this place be the best place for windows specific questions? Is there any documentation with FAQ or anything?

For development I think the Acquia Dev Desktop tool is a great solution - https://www.acquia.com/products-services/dev-desktop However, it's not really focused on building and managing a production environment.

It would be interesting to know how many people are using IIS vs. Apache in production on Windows. My Impression is that it's about 70% IIS and 30% Apache.
