Blog platform for IIS?

I'm looking for a simple blog platform along the lines of WordPress, Typo3, etc that runs on a Windows Server? I only came across one and they want $5000 for a commercial license which is crazy!

I've installed Wordpress on Windows servers, and it works fairly well. One major drawback is URL rewriting, which WP normally does using .htaccess on Apache. That, of course, won't work in a Windows environment and I haven't seen a comparable plugin that will.

Oh WP works on Windows? I didn't know that thought it was Apache only. Thanks!

The Blogging platforms that you can use:

Blog uses PHP

Blojsom uses Java

Blosxom uses MySQL and PHP

B2Evolution uses mySQL and PHP

Chyrp uses mySQL, PHP and AJAX

Drupal uses PHP

ExpressionEngine uses mySQL and PHP

Greymatter uses PERL

Joomla uses PHP and mySQL

Mambo uses Apache, MySQL and PHP

Mephisto uses Ruby

MovableType uses MySQL and Perl/PHP

Nucleus uses MySQL and

Pivot uses PHP

PyBloxsom uses Python

Pylogger uses Python

Serendipity uses PHP

SuLogo uses PHP and mySQL

TextPattern uses mySQL and PHP

Thingamablog uses Java

Typo uses Ruby

WordPress.org uses MySQL and PHP

Xoops uses PHP

Though it should be noted that some of these systems describe themselves as complete CMS (Content Management Systems)

Nice list, guia.

Are you on shared or dedicated hosting, Ahkamden?

There are some problems with Apache on Vista, though. I've run into times where the server just crashes for no reason, actually while I was doing some tasks in WP now that I think about it.

I wouldn't suggest serving a site from a Vista or XP machine though. (They're fine for development.) I was thinking of the Windows 2003 or Windows 2008 platforms.

You can certainly run MySQL and PHP on IIS though. I have Drupal sites on a Windows 2003 server, so I know that works.
