Just reading the title is probably enough to frighten you away.
Admissions wants to setup some student blogs. I want to use Wordpress MU. We are a Microsoft campus (insert groan here). Do you know of anyone who has gotten Wordpress MU to work on a Windows server. I've read alot about third part mod_rewrite apps for IIS that "supposedly" might work (but haven't seen any data on Wordpress MU working with them). I'd like to stay away from those plugins if I can.
Here's my options as I see them:
1) Install apache on a windows box currently running IIS and filter off a specific subdomain to hit the apache service. I was playing around with this, but I was having trouble getting PHP to work in both environments.
2) Install apache on a visualized windows server.
Any suggestions (besides dumping Windows Server which is not an option), thoughts, workarounds, urls, resources..
