    But it's not secure for production - even xampp says so. I think we've discussed this before davy. Read More

no, we own our own server. (I am trying to install xampp and prepare the web server to launch the web that I just develop).

Install either NGINX or HTTPD (apache) on your server, then install extras if needed such as MySQL (maybe with PHPMyAdmin), PHP and whatever else...
But you DO NOT...

DO NOT!

Use XAMPP on a production server.

Any reason why you're even using Windows Server?

yes, since it's work and easier to install.

Sorry couldn't resist.

Since when was any other OS hard to install? o.o
IMO, if you're doing anything systems related, you should be up to date with *NIX.

Just the thought of having a production site hosted inside the xampp can make me cringed. Uniform server is far better than Xampp in terms of production website security. However, that is not the right way serving websites for the web.

If you are using windows, there is an Oracle VM virtual-box to consider. You can install linux server inside the virtual box and then port the IP address of the virtual box in your windows hosts file and then make the virtual server serve on port 80. Normally, this is on the network configuration page of your modem manufacturer.

By using this kind of configuration, you can have mail service, news feed service, ftp service, apache, nginx, mysql, webmin, and the experience of doing things most web professionals does on a daily basis.

Another alternative is to let your windows apache server ( this will work better if the nginx is located in the window side or host side and then forward to virtual host's apache) receive and forward all requests to the virtual host.
