    Hi there,

    I recently got my Sitefinity instance on a shared hosting server that does not have the IIS Metabase 6 compatibility pack installed.  My hosting provider does not allow this to be installed on its servers.  My site appears to be working great and I'm just wondering if anyone knows specificially what problems might occur by not having this installed on the production server.  Nothing bad has happened yet, but I would love to know what the potential issues are before installing other Sitefinity sites with this hosting provider.  My initial guess is that I would have problems with the project manager piece but I am using that on localhost and then manually installing on my hosting server.  Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance for your help,
    Candace

    Hi Candace,

    There is nothing to worry about.

    IIS Metabase 6 Compatibility is a limitation only for the Project Manager, which requires ASP.NET Impersonation.
    The Sitefinity web site itself is working fine on IIS 7 without this pack.

    Best wishes,
