WordPress Hosting

Can you place a WordPress site on any web server?  For instance, we have an unmanaged web server with Liquid Web.  Can I just drop the source code for a wordpress site in there like any other site?

Thanks!

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Wordpress will need availability of php and a database.
WordPress server requirements for Version 3.2+:
- PHP version 5.2.4 or greater
-  MySQL version 5.0.15 or greater
-  (Optional) (Required for Multisite) Apache mod_rewrite module (for clean URIs known as Permalinks)

You should check with your host if they can provide in this.
