The minimum suggested requirements for WebMatrix hosting are Windows Server 2008 R2, IIS 7, and both ASP.NET 4.0 and 3.5 available (How to config the host for webmatrix?[^]), but in my experience Windows Server 2008 is enough.

My sites use both SQL CE and SQL Server 2008 Express.
After installing Web Server Components I haven't experienced any problem.
