WIMP Server

I will soon be converting my current Windows XP server which functions as a web server and ftp server to a windows 2008 server. The following will be replaced:

Apache -> IIS

Filezilla -> IIS FTP

Features that will be added:

WSUS – Windows update service

DNS – Domain name resolution

DHCP – This will replace my modems inbuilt dhcp hopefully

Hopefully I will be able to replace these and go with an all windows solution to my current setup. Purpose of this exercise it to learn more about server 2k8 and to see if it is possible to have an all windows setup which does not need any 3rd party applications to run things (except PHP and MySQL).

Will be updating this post as I go along.
