Note: When installing Iguana as a Production Server please follow the recommendations in the the Best Practice Production Deployment for Iguana article in our Deployment Guide section.

Warning: If you are installing Iguana on a Windows Server you will need to Disable IE ESC (enhanced IE browser security), as it prevents javascript from running which prevents you from registering/running Iguana.
