Thanks - We love Apache and we love php and we've even setup a seperate Linux server just to run the Mysql Database behind the site. The old system was all developed in Cold Fusion and relied on Microsoft SQL Server and Cold Fusion does not play well together with Apache 2.0.
We are redeveloping Boat Manager in php and getting it off Cold Fusion. The marketing folks here wanted some additional features in Boat Manager and the developers are all too willing to comply which has delayed the implementation of the new Boat Manager module. But the activity on the site has increased so much that Cold Fusion just can't hold up even on our new servers which are 4 GB Ram, Dual Pentium 3.2 GHZ Xenon Processors with Hyper threading and fast scsi raid drive array configurations. We spared no expense on the servers when we took over Sailnet and got off their old delapidated servers.
We're putting in lots lots of extra hours to get rid of all the old Cold Fusion Code and it cannot happen too soon as far as we're concerned - as we're sure you are too!
