    My website will have a small database with SQL Server Express edition
    For registration 5 or 7 tables only
    IIS 6.0
    ASP.NET 2.0 technology with Windows 2003 server
    Few hundred visitors a day maybe
    Over all 30 -35 pages max

    My question is:
    Do we need Windows 2003 web server or just the windows 2003 standard
    1 processor or 2?
    1GB RAM or 2GB?

  3. Web edition would probably be fine, it doesnt sound like you're looking to do
    anything outside of the web license limitiations.

    "CM"'s post that it's only available via. OEM; this is incorrect. It's
    available via VLA, SPLA and OEM channels:

    Sounds like the server will have a very small amount of traffic so you'd
    probably be fine with a single CPU. Of course depending on what those web
    pages are doing and how much SQL traffic you have YMMV.

    As with Oded Dror, I would like to use Server 2003 Web Edition to host my
    websites. One thing I noticed in the server comparision web page:

    In the web and application services section it indicates that .Net Framework
    version 2.0 is not supported. I assume that this means that ASP.Net 2.0 is
    also not supported. Does anyone know whether both of these things are true
    or fales. Or, is there a download to make Web Edition able to run version

    Hi,Todd. Has anyone responded to your question? I'm trying to decide between
    Standard and Enterprise x64 versions and would like to understand what it
    means that ASP.NET and the CLR are not suppoorted on the Enterprise version.

    Hi Bob,

    Yes my question did get answered. The key to the answer was a closer look
    at the key on the server 2003 comparison web page. An empty Circle doesn't
    mean not supported, but "Feature not included" acording to the key for the
    comparision table. My understanding is that this means that a feature that
    is not included "may be" available for download and installation.

    In my case, Web Edition, I believe that I will be able to download and
    install the .net framework 2.0 from MS.

    I hope this anwsers your question.
