Currently, we have our site running on Umbraco on a Windows server. I'd like to run a subdomain on the same server, but on WordPress running a WAMP configuration. Is this possible? From what I'm seeing, as long as the two webservers are config'd to use different ports (i'm thinking i'll run WAMP on 8080) that they should be fine.
I would also be open to running WordPress on IIS as well, but I'm not sure if there's any downside. Do plugins still work the same between different platforms and databases? I'm thinking of some of the security plugins i've seen.
