Impossible to say without a LOT more information - especially the
conditions under which is running.

What you're asking is is the performance of a Honda Civic suitable.
Sure, for around town and on the highway. But I wouldn't try one on a
NASCAR track.

PHP with MySQL is much more common. PHP is really optimized for the
Linux environment. If you get it to work, post what you did.

Not with javascript. Nonsense propagates like wildfire in this field.

Windows.
The web site will be big with something like 1000 access per day.

This is 0,7 accesses per minute. The cheapest Web Space will do.

MS SQL SERVER only runs on MS-Windows, so PHP with MS SQL SERVER pretty
much implies MS-Windows, unless one is accessing MS SQL SERVER via a
network connection (it is not generally not not considered a good idea
to access a SQL server (of any type) over a network connection,
partitularly a *public* Internet connection, from a security POV).
Note: accessing ANY SQL server over a network will be performance
limited by the network connection.

1/. 1000 accesses a *second* is BIG.

2/. BIG and 'using windows' should never be uttered in the same sentence

You could use a virtual machine to run M$ SQL $erver inside Linux! Not
sure if Wine could cut it... Anyway, don't overload it! :)

I seem to recall that MS SQL SERVER is engineered to require a real
system to run. It won't run in a VM. Leastways that the way it was a
few years ago. Maybe MS changed SQL SERVER to support running in a VM.

Just looked it up, VMware vSphere is selling as MS SQL Server platform, and licensing
for MS SQL Server 2012 has entries for VM licences.

Running SQL Server here in a VMWare VM with no issues.

I'm working on a website that I'm slowly converting to PHP.
Half is running ASP, and half PHP. All running in a windows VM without
any issues (once I figured out what the connect string was !).

I wouldn't have chosen SQL Server if I'd had the choice, but that's what
I've got to work with, and it works as well as SQL Server ever does.

JohnT
