    In an effort to save a couple of bucks (always a goal these days), can we install and deploy Sitefinity 3.6x or higher on Microsoft's Web Server 2008? The requirements page does not specifically mention it can be used and I can't find any references in the forum. I would be using SQL Server 2008 but on a different server.

    Thanks!

    Hi Bob Boyd,

    Sitefinity supports Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008. The installation process is the as it is for the other platforms. You can gather more information at http://www.sitefinity.com/support/installation-guide.aspx

    Thanks for the quick response, Ivan.

    I did see that information but I am a little confused as Server 2008 comes in several versions such as Small Business, Standard, Datacenter and Enterprise, in addition to Web. Microsoft also has a Web version of SQL Sever 2008. If I can get a confirmation that Sitefinity will work on that combination specifically, it would save my company a significant amount on the purchase.

    Could you confirm that the specific combination of Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit x64 Web and SQL Server 2008 Web (64-bit) x64 will run Sitefinity Standard Edition 3.6x?

    Thanks again!

    Hello Bob Boyd,

    Could you confirm that the specific combination of Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit x64 Web and SQL Server 2008 Web (64-bit) x64 will run Sitefinity Standard Edition 3.6x?

    Yes, we confirm that Sitefinity will run fine in this environment. All we require is IIS5,6 or 7 (Windows 2008 comes with IIS 7) and SQL Server. The server should have Asp.Net installed. 

    Let us know if you have any other questions. 

    Best wishes,
