.Net vs LAMP

by daveydoe / March 14, 2007 2:56 PM PDT

I've got an online job board built in .Net. The programmer who built the site made some big mistakes and now a lot of the site's functions are flawed.

We've since found a new programmer to build us a new site. A business partner has suggested we build the new site in LAMP. Our new programmer is capable of working with both, but I'm still wondering which one we should go with.

Apart from some basic programming courses I've taken, I'm pretty uneducated when it comes to these sorts of things, so I'd really like to hear what the general concensus is on these two platforms. So far my research hasn't turned up anything conclusive.

- Thanks

These are tools that are used to get the job done. It shouldn't be a factor in how well the product turns out.

HOWEVER, the use of industrial strength MySQL and other items will give you a boost in not having to chase down the .NET issues.

But there is more to each side of this I think:

LAMP = Linux + Apache + MySQL + PHP. Thus there are 4 technologies there that all are used together and so the .Net gets converted to PHP I'd think.

.Net leaves out what server O/S is being used, what web server software like Apache or IIS, what database server software is used as part of the idea on .Net is that it is very flexible, though you don't say if that board was coded to a MS-SQL, MySQL or Oracle one.

On a rather generic level you have the LAMP architecture,the Microsoft architecture, and Java for a few ideas here but there are lots of questions here like what kind of scalability do you want, what price do you want to pay, how many and how soon do you want enhancements, etc.

Regards,
JB

Microsoft Apache MySQL and PHP.

That combo works too.
