Did you say Open Source on Microsoft Platform?

Published on at 9:56 am by iWeb Technologies in: iWeb Articles

Hi folks, my name is Nik and I’m an Open Source Strategy Lead at Microsoft Canada. Yes, you read it right… Open Source and Microsoft. Many people get surprised when they hear my title, or when I tell them there’s a Technology Centre at Microsoft dedicated to making Open Source apps work well on Windows. Many will probably be surprised to hear that iWeb and Microsoft have been working together to offer a Windows Server package for running many popular Open Source applications. Why are we doing this?

In the past we’ve often heard our customers at iWeb and Microsoft Canada say: “Hey, I want to run a blog, or a CMS on my site. I use Windows, but want to use WordPress, or Drupal, or Joomla! What are you guys doing to make it easy for me?” Well, now we have an easy answer for you!

We’ve created an installer called…. Web Platform Installer — I know, we’re so creative in our naming –specifically for Open Source applications, including many popular PHP apps like WordPress, Gallery 2, Aquia Drupal, and most recently Joomla! It’s easy to get them running on Windows server with just a couple of clicks and filling out simple wizard for admin & database info. WebPI checks the server for what’s installed, such as the right version of PHP, modules, etc., understands all the dependencies, and then goes out and downloads + installs all the components. It’s crazy simple. You can read more on it here.

You may ask us why we care about PHP, or who would want to run OSS apps on Windows? I like the fact that with iWeb’s Windows Server package you get both the PHP and .NET frameworks installed, so now you’ll have access to both PHP apps and also .NET apps like DotNetNuke – from the Web Platform Installer. And you also get your choice of databases including SQL Server 2008 Express. And with iWeb’s dedicated server promo starting at $79/month, it’s an offer you can’t refuse!

I’d love to hear your feedback and suggestions about PHP apps on Windows, as we work with iWeb on more cool offers, so hit me up on twitter @Nik_G or @PHPonWindows.
