Web site hosted on Linux


As a web designer I have always used Windows hosting platforms & have no experience of Linux.

A client of mine wants to host a site using a Linux platform. The site itself will be created using a combination of Coldfusion, Flash Remoting and mySQL (all of which are supported by the host I have in mind).

Since I'll be using a third party host (ie I don't have to install Linux myself) does it matter that I have no knowledge of Linux?

That is, can I just create the same kind of site with the same code that I would use on Windows and expect it to work the same way on Linux or is there anything I should be aware of?

Thanks & Regards,

You site should work regardless of which OS is being used to host them as long as the hosting provider supports the technologies you intend to use (which is not a problem from what you mention above). When I first started developing websites, I used to host them on Linux even though I didn't know how to use Linux at that time.
