I have found the more RAM the better. You can run CF 7 on IIS the webserver that comes with it is not for production purposes.
When you install it, you will have a choice to make it a standalone server like you are use to seeing or making it a multi-instance server.
You should definetely read up and be aware of all the different choices you can make before setting up your server.
For the CF7 new gadgets, add more RAM. It looks pretty fine, runs smooth but it can chomp ram like hell.
Thanks for the info. Just to make sure I understand.....The consensus is that using (converting to) the advanced features of CF7 (e.g., Flash Forms, Flash Paper, etc.) is not any more CPU intensive than CF5, but IS more memory intensive, correct?
I've already downloaded and installed the trial version of CF7, and ran our existing templates on CF7. All except the charts ran OK. But I did notice when trying Flash Forms, Flash Paper, and some other advance features, they seemed to run more slowly, then when using plain HTML forms, and HTML (table) output.
I thought this slowness would have been more related to CPU usage, vs. memory. But you are saying this is not the case? That by ensuring there is plenty of memory, there should be no noticable difference in speed/performance when converting the templates to the new features?
Thanks very much for your help/advice.
