This might be a dumb question but I am going to ask it any way. I am on a Mac but I have a windows server with IIS. What should I be downloading from your site: windows or MAC? Also, the reason I am not understanding is because my current website is written in asp which is why it is on a windows server. It has been my understanding that PHP needs to be on a Linux server. Can you please explain which and or what I need to download?
Thanks, YAVmsw

There's only one version of SilverStripe you can download; that's because the code isn't compiled into an executable and so runs on any system (Mac, Windows, Linux) that has the right software installed.
