Our production dept wants to move our current SS installation from "Windows Server 2003, 32 bit" to "Windows Server 2008, 64 bit".

The page here says that Windows Server 2008 is fine,, but there's no mention of which type.

Does anyone know if SS runs okay on 64 bit?

Hi Junglefish,

There's no problem between 32-bit and 64-bit versions. PHP can run as x86 on Windows x64 and IIS will install and operate the same between the two types.

Yes. It's right.
