Does wordpress installation faces problems if the website's server is IIS ?

Our site is built with PHP-MySQL and the server is IIS.

Generally, everything should work fine except with permalinks, because you may not have a IIS filter to do what mod_rewrite does (not sure I'm using the right terminology b/c I don't know jack about IIS).

Basic install shoudl be the same. Then if you want to use "pretty" permalinks, you'll want to google on things like "wordpress IIS permalinks" "wordpress url rewrite iis" "wordpress isapi_rewrite".

Sorry, but I personally don't know enough to really say which solution you want, but there appear to be lots of them.
