Unhappy Linux, Wordpress and Windows XP

Hi everyone,
I have Windows XP installed and I'm trying to build a blog using Wordpress and a free template. My hosting is through using Linux.

I can't get Wordpress to load from the 123reg "Administrative Interface", is there some kind of an incompatibilty issue? Is it possible to run Windows and Linux together and if so which one would run inside the other, or can they run in tandem?

Also I only use my PC for business, ie no games.

Many thanks.

Hi and welcome to LQ.

123reg provides installation scripts for Wordpress. It doesn't matter which option (Linux vs Windows) you chose with them. There shouldn't be any problems with it. It might be a question of limited number of databases with lowest hosting packages. I think you should open a support ticket. After all, you're paying them for hosting your website.
