Windows 2003 WEB Edition? - Microsoft SQL / MS SQL Server

Hi there, I'm about to install a new MS server and I'm still unsure wheter to go with the Web or Std. edition of 2003. The server includes both mssql server 2k (standard) AND IIS. I also need DNS/FTP services and terminal server access. There are 2 cpu, and 1gb of ram. Any considerations?...

    Default Windows 2003 WEB Edition?

    Hi there,

    I'm about to install a new MS server and I'm still unsure wheter to go with
    the Web or Std. edition of 2003.
    The server includes both mssql server 2k (standard) AND IIS. I also need
    DNS/FTP services and terminal server access.

    There are 2 cpu, and 1gb of ram.

    Any considerations?

    Hi

    This is a SQLServer newsgroup, but you may find what you require at

    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/evaluation/features/compareeditions.mspx
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/evaluation/overview/web.mspx
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/iis/evaluation/features/default.mspx

    I would advise that functions like DNS are allocated to a different server,
    as the WebServer should be isolated in a DMZ and not accessed for general
    functions.

    IN addition to John's answers you can not use the Web edition of 2003 if you
    plan on installing SQL Server other than MSDE version.

    Might want to read the first section of http://www.aspfaq.com/2461 before
    you spend any money on that software combination.

    Why can't you use SQL Server on the web edition? What happens?

    Surely, in my perfect world I would have:
    1 server running iis
    1 server running sql server
    1 server running exchange
    2 geographical distinct DNS servers

    But I'm NOT rich, yet. so I'll just have to settle. :-)

    NO you wouldn't. You'd have 2+ load balanced clustered servers of each
    kind! And 64 processing, multi CPU machines. That's what everyone else
    here does :)

    Jokes aside, the last poster's comment about separate machines from the
    databse is definitely a good idea for security, with a firewall between.
