Local Instal.

I have installed the Windows Joomla locally on my machine for testing and learning purposes. If I remember rightly when I installed it that was exactly what it was designed for. As I am not a developer I dont really know much about mysql so this kind of install is ideal.

Can I use this for clients or is it not recommended.
I am also looking for a private LAN Intranet version of Joomla, again Windows based for a newbie, can this be used.
What is the deal with upgrading the Windows based version.

This is more of an opinion than anything else, but what I do is run an internal server off on a gateway dmz. Private address space. You can do NAT for accomplishing this. I wouldn't personally run a windows box directly connected to the web. With a router/gateway firewall plus a linux server off on a dmz, you have quite a bit of flexibility and security options. With a 4 port ethernet, you can break down internal networks and associated rules so that you have better control. I would never prefer my internal machines be on the same
network as a webserver.

Thank you.

So it would be a good way of creating a private Intranet that is not in the public domain, just using a standard Windows server as a web server.

I wouldnt need the DMZ configuration or Linux server with a private Intranet.
