Figure 7.8 illustrates the process for migrating Apache-specific extensions to IIS 6.0.

The Apache-specific extensions on Linux commonly include MySQL and PHP. The combination of Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP are often referred to as LAMP. LAMP is the application platform used for Linux systems. The migration of the Apache Web sites must include the migration of LAMP.
For more information about migrating Apache Web sites to IIS, see Migrating from Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. Although the white paper refers to IIS 5.0 and Windows 2000 Server, the processes and methods are applicable for IIS 6.0 and Windows Server 2003.
