I have a question that I hope someone can answer.

I have recently bought a website which is currently hosted on a windows based server and the script does not work.

Yet, after testing it on a nix based server, it works. What are the differences in the server, and how can I make this work on my windows hosting?

Hope this is the right place for the question!

It all depends on what language the scripts are written in, and whether the Windows server has the software installed that can process that scripting language. For scripting languages that are common on an Apache/Linux server such as PHP or Perl, you often need to install the program to process those scripts on a Windows IIS server.

For example, one way to process PHP on a Windows IIS server would be to set up the FastCGI [iis.net] plug-in, which is now officially supported on IIS.NET.
