been a long time since i posted here, have been busy with work and class as usual. As a part of my Software Engineering Group project - we have been asked to create a big DataBAse for a whole school system. Our group is mostly newbies and freshers and I am the lead for setting up the server and to act as System Admin. The university has is giving us space on their server and am setting up a system in the lab to act as our server. Some of the guys want PHP/MyAdmin on there.
I was wondering if it is better to run Windows or Linux, of which i have very little experience. I know that linux is more secure. but is it all easier than windows to setup this server on. Also what distro of Linux would u guys suggest - i have Ubuntu 5.04 and Mandrake LE 2005 at the ready.
Hope that you guys have some words of advice for me and can put me in the right direciton
