Im contracting a website that is on a Linux box, which i have never worked on....

Always been on Windoze servers....anyway, anything i need to look out for during the development of this new website?

Ive been developing sites for 5 years so am familiary with several languages..ASP, Javascript, SQL, HTML....etc....

not a genius by any means though....

Are their any significant differences on the two platforms that i need to be careful about...

i know one is the ".htaccess" file which i am dying to learn to use, since windoze cannot use that file....

anything else?

well most certainly you'll be using php not asp

and mysql rather than sqlserver [slight variance in use of sql]

otherwise not a lot of difference.

also, i shouldnt have a problem developing a PHP site in Dreamweaver on a PC, and then uploading to a Linux box correct?

I read that it should be parsed all the same and run correctly?

no that should be fine although last time i looked, dreamweaver was easier to develop asp than php ... things may have changed in the last couple of years though
