    Hello,

    Read the following :

    http://download1.swsoft.com/Plesk/Plesk8.1/Windows/Docs/plesk-8.1-win-ig/index.htm

    http://download1.swsoft.com/Plesk/Plesk8.1/Windows/Docs/plesk-8.1-win-ig/6365.htm

    you must install IIS , otherwise , how you will host web sites of your customers ?

    there is something that you don't understand.

    Plesk is a web application , this means that Plesk need to run under a web server application ( either apache or IIS ). but this is only for Plesk.

    regarding the web sites which you will host on the servers , the customers web sites , they must be running under IIS .

    Yes, but it is written here http://download1.swsoft.com/Plesk/Plesk8.1/Windows/Docs/plesk-8.1-win-ig/32248.htm :


    Or this means web-server for plesk control panel itself?

    Hello,

    I will summarize my answer:

    1) install IIS (you must).

    2) when you run Plesk installation , you can choose one of the following :

    A) IIS
    B) Apache

    choose what ever you want , but I suggest : A) IIS

    even if you choose B) Apache , you still must to install IIS.
    it's doesn't matter.

    that's all

    Change from Apache to IIS

    I want to reconfigure an existing server with 300 clients and 500 domains from Apache to IIS. Is this possible? Is it risky?

    Re: Change from Apache to IIS

    No, it will take about a several second to switch Plesk from apache to iis or vice versa, please check the article below:
    http://kb.swsoft.com/en/2151
    it will help you.

    Thank you for your reply.

    The switch from Apache to IIS went smooth. We are getting better performance from the Plesk Windows server.

    I am interested in knowing the difference in performance using SQL 2005 Express vs. MySQL for the Plesk database on a Windows 2003 server. Anyone have experience with this?

    SQL Express 2005 is more productive if you host hundreds and thousands sites.
    Also it is more productive if you use single SQL server to store Plesk system database for several Plesk installations.
