Hi,

I’ve been through a lot a posts on this forum but I can’t find the answer I’m looking for. I need a clear answer on this one so I hope you guys can help me out.

Is Magento going to work or not with a hosting provider that:
- Isn’t running on an Apache Web Server (Windows 2003 / IIS 6 in this case)
- Doesn’t support the use of htaccess files

I’ve checked with my hosting provider and all the other system requirements are supported.

Many thanks in advance.

They do list Apache as a system requirement.  If you are seriously interested in using Magento, I’d suggest running it on a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) server.

Maybe you can work out a way to get it running on ISS, but don’t expect everything to run smoothly.

Many thanks for the reply. I think I’m going to switch to a different hosting company then smile
