Client has web hosting and email hosting from one web provider.
Their email hosting is integrated with their systems for their office — an Exchange server (located on their premises).
Both are on a Windows server (the same one, TBC — security problem?), but this web host does not support PHP, a problem for:
- WordPress on a subdirectory
- PHP contact form scripts
- PHP includes
Nor does it support .htaccess — a problem for things that I have built into the site:
- Various other enhancements
Client has agreed to move the website over to either a UNIX server with the same web host, or I can also suggest another (cheaper/better) one.
The email can remain hosted on the Windows server (as I understand Exchange will not work on Apache).
Will it be possible to seamlessly and easily do this? Likely by changing A/CNAME/NS/MX settings for the domain?
