Using concrete5 On Microsoft Windows Platforms Just Became Super Easy

concrete5 is an emerging leader in next generation web content management. Written for the LAMP stack, Windows support has always been an afterthought for the core team. Now concrete5 works well with IIS and can be installed with one click from the Microsoft WebMatrix application.

“We’ve always picked Unix based plaftorms for our own web hosting” says Concrete CMS CTO Andrew Embler. “Now that concrete5 works well on IIS, we’re ecstatic that a larger community of business customers will be able to take advantage of concrete5’s easy approach to web content management, while staying on their Windows based server environment.”

Database support for concrete5 is still limited to MySQL, although SQL Server support is currently being worked on.
