The hardware all depends on how busy your site is and the nature of your scripts. For light to medium use, you should not need more than 3-4 FoxWeb channels. If you have long-running scripts or a busier site, you may need to adjust this, by looking at channel utilization.
For operating system, I would recommend Win Server 2003 or 2008. FoxWeb will work in both 32 and 64-bit versions of the OS, but the 32-bit version will make it easier to configure and maintain.
Tests by the VFP community have shown that allocating too much RAM for buffer memory hurts VFP's performance. In general, you should keep the buffer memory size at 100MB or less.

We have moved our FoxWeb server to a VM and it is running well.
I was wondering, however, what you consider to be the optimal configuration for a server for FoxWeb. Since we are running on a VM, cnanging the configuration is not difficult. So I'd like your opinion about:
Best Win OS
Amount of memory
Number of Channels
Buffer mem size
Anything else you think I forgot to ask that would lead to an optimal solution.
