I am upgrading our website and would like to add a blog to the site.
im not familiar with blogging software, but after some research decided WordPress was the one...
Now I have searched the docs, but have a few questions on if it is possible to setup in my environment.
1. My site is created in asp.net using windows hosting. Are there any issues with this? My hosting company say I should move to Linux to run wordpress. (I cant move to Linux as the site is written in asp.net). They have said I can try and install on windows but wont support or help me if i run into trouble which is a bit worrying! (the php and MySql requirements are met)
2. Assuming I could implement this on a windows platform and integrate WordPress with an asp.net website, am I able to install the wordpress blog as a subdirectory without changing the rest of the site? EG If my site is www,something,com can I leave this unchanged and simply add a wordpress blog to www,something,com/blog... or do I have to create the whole site with wordpress. My hosting company told me I can only install the blogging software on a fresh url??? so I should create a seperate url for my blog! (www,blog-something,com)... Ive read for SEO its best to have a subdirectory, so that's what I would like.
Im getting mixed stories, so would like some advice on how I could install a wordpress blog on a windows hosting server, with an existing asp.net site as a subfolder on an existing domain?
