Support » Localhost Installs » wordpress made in windows on linux server

  • Hi,
    I have created a wordpress website in wamp (windows) and am using plugins like wptouch, dudamobile, contactform7 and GRAND FIAgallery. All this has been done on windows on localhost.

    I want to tranfer the files to a webserver. So, is it ok to transfer it to an Apache server on linux platform or should I go for IIS server on Windows platform?

    What would be the consequences if incorrect server is chosen?

    waiting for a reply.

  • Your WAMP on Windows is providing Apache, MySQL and PHP (hence, WAMP).

    The preferred environment for WP on a remote webserver is LAMP … same as above but L for Linux 🙂

    I do this all the time. I devleop locally in Windows, then the site is uploaded to the Linux staging server, and then to (mainly) linux hosting servers.

    The only difference that you’ll find is if the Windows server is running IIS and not Apache. In that case the permalinks won’t work as IIS doesn’t do URL rewriting in the same way (but there are ways around that if you need it).
