Chris ive contacted my Admin subdomain and they said this :
" be sure they are linux compatible.  "

So i need to See the System Requirements

your domain admin needs to learn his stuff… Because most CMS's dont care that much wether they run on Unix, Linux, Redhat or Windows server systems, aslong as the PHP, MySQL etc are configured the right way..

I have had this portal running on a Windows server 2003, Windows XP Pro SP2 and WinXP Pro standard, and same counts for home. Al you need to do is set up the Apache, PHP, SQL etc up good.

Sorry for my tone, but its not against you, its against your domain admin… I really think he is just telling you stuff, and that he doesnt even know what to do to fix it..

Normal way is that you get the server specs from your domain admin when wanting to install something on the server.
Now your domain admin wants to know the specs of the CMS? Thats the wrong way around…

:D  Dont shoot the messenger!!  :D

How many of you believe in telekinesis? Raise my hand.

I guess a warning in your line of work tends tomean 'run for cover'. Fortunately it's not so severe when it comes to computers ;).

Sorry for the confusion: the link to the hosting tutorial was incorrect, and it should've linked to the proper hosting tutorial instead.
The installation tutorial will be fixed shortly. :)

Just to reiterate, what LeonK said is correct - assuming that MySQL, PHP and Apache are configured properly, it shouldn't matter which operating system you use. We've been running ocPortal on both Linux and Windows environments for years without any problems. :)
