    lets crash

    Hello,
    Please tell me if the following sentence is okay:
    This program lets our server crash.

    I have no idea if this version would be better:
    This program lets crash our server.

    P.S: I chose version 1...

    Thank you!

    Cheers!

    Re: lets crash

    Although not an English teacher, I do teach topics related to the internet.

    A server is a computer that hosts websites.

    To say that a program lets our server crash sounds like this is normal and acceptable. It would be like saying the drain plug, when pulled up, lets the water drain out of the tub.

    Servers are not supposed to crash. So it would be more likely that the program would...

    ...cause the server to crash
    ...result in the server crashing
    ...bring on a server crash
    ...induce the server to crash
    ...induce a server crash.
