I am looking at changing a website that is presently running on a shared Windows Server, running IIS 6.0 to one with a WordPress backend.
PHP and MySQL are possible but mod_rewrite won't be.
What effect will that have on setting up and then actually running the site?
Presumably search engine friendly URLs won't be possible for the 'news' entries, but what about the static pages like domain.com/about etc.? Will they all be of the form domain.com/?p=123 or suchlike? What about plug-ins: do they still function if it's just PHP/MySQL installed?
For various reasons, we don't want to move to a different provider.
