WordPress Now Runs on SQL Server and SQL Azure

 WordPress, one of the most popular blogging platforms out there, can now run on SQL Server and SQL Azure thanks to a new patch made available via OmniTI. And if you’re interested in making the switch (or starting from scratch), there’s a new resource for you available from WordPress.Visitmix.com which contains all sorts of info about using WordPress along with Microsoft technologies.

The site offers helpful articles about using themes, plugins and Windows Live Writer to compose posts, a link to support forums and a great article about why the bleep (yes, that’s what it says) Microsoft is doing this.

To get started with WordPress on SQL Server or SQL Azure, you need to download the SQL Server distro or patch. Then you can check out the Getting Started page to get everything properly set up.
