    Default IIS7/php Session Support - Error at install

    I am getting this message when I install zencart:

    You need to enable PHP Session support on your webserver. You might try installing this module: php4-session

    PHP Session Support is required in order to support user-login and payment/checkout procedures. Please talk to your host to reconfigure PHP to enable session support.

    I am usining GoDaddy and they responded saying I have to cancel my hosting account and change it to one that supports IIS7, is that correct?
    I'm sure lots of people use GoDaddy and also use ZenCart.
    What do I have to do?

    ok, just read another post about GoDaddy and how it is not a very good hosting co especially for ZenCart. Guess I'll be shopping for a new one.
    This is frustrating!

    Additionally, unless you have a very specific reason for hosting on a Windows server, you'll probably find that hosting on a Linux server gives you more flexibility and reliablility, not to mention better security.
