Installing WordPress On Windows Using SQL Server 2008 R2 Part 1

After doing some reading this seemed perfectly OK except for the fact they wanted WordPress installing on it’s native environment of Linux using MySQL. This instantly caused complexities so it was put forward that we run it on a Windows platform and use their existing SQL 2008 R2 database server to host the content.

This gave us some added benefits in that we did not need to worry about another backup and D.R solution for the new hardware hosting WordPress. After investigating installing WordPress using SQL Server it seemed perfectly simple but after looking around it seemed that lots of information was missing or scattered all over the place and things were not as simple as it first looked.

In light of this I was inspired to write this Blog post to share this information from one source rather than the headache of trying to hunt it all down. This post has been split into two sections.
