Hi,

We test on Apache primarily, but also IIS.

However almost any webserver should work, if you know how to configure PHP to run on that server. We don't provide any guidance to setting up URL schemes on servers other than Apache or IIS, so if you want URL schemes (SEO URLs) you need to work out how to configure them from the rules we provide for Apache in recommended.htaccess.
I think Nginx has it's own system for rewrites, but Litespeed is fully Apache compatible so should actually work out-of-the-box.

Regards,
Chris

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

WebMatrix/ISS work perfectly. However I will note one VERY important mention….

You MUST make sure you have at least PHP 5.X or above installed or you will have some very strange issues in install happening. I always update to the latest PHP but out of the box for ISS/WebMatrix they tend to install 5.1 which causes issues in ISS running correctly on install over localhost.

There are a few tricks to get it to work faster if you need me to post them I will.
