Using Joomla 2.5 windows with Webmatrix - Hosting issue

Post by krust76y » Sat Aug 11, 2012 5:38 pm

Hi everyone, sorry if this is listed somewhere but I couldn't see it.

I'm using Joomla 2.5 on a windows 7 box with Webmatrix, just to develop my site.

I've now tried to purchase hosting (currently 123-reg.co.uk) but I can only have a Joomla site if I have a Linux account. Will my site be compatible once uploaded or do I need to find a specific hosting provider with Joomla for windows servers?

Any pointers to a specific area of the forum regarding this would be ideal to save wasting anyones time.

With Thanks
Regards
Krust76y

Yes this should be fine. Joomla is generally OS independent.
Have you used MSSQL as well as IIS for the WebMatrix local site?
The only other change that is most likely needed would be not using the webconfig file but .htaccess file instead
