Windows Server 2012 R2 and Drupal 7

Categories: 

When it came time to build a new server for our new website, we decided to go with the latest and greatest version of Windows Server 2012 R2.  There wasn't a lot of information posted about whether or not Drupal 7 would work on the new platform from Microsoft, but we decided to press on.  It was a pretty easy install, thanks to the Web Installer in IIS 8.  We used the installer for PHP, but manually installed MySQL and Drupal 7. 

So far it seems to be running great and we really love using a CMS to manage our content.  The webserver is running on our XenServer 6.2 pool (which is really nice, if you haven't checked it out the latest build of XenServer).  If anyone else if running Drupal 7 on Windows Server 2012 R2, we'd love to hear from you and see what your experience has been thus far.
