ReWrite Not Working

Post by JEmlay » Mon Oct 15, 2012 10:12 pm

New install of phpMyFAQ 2.8.0-alpha2 on Windows Server 2012 (IIS8).

I installed ISAPI_Rewrite3_0095_x64 from isapirewrite.com. I confirmed the DLLs are loaded into the sites ISAPI Filters. I renamed the httpd.ini file and checked Enable URL rewrite support in the backends Main Configuration.

The site loads however if I try to access any of the links such as Add FAQ I receive a 404 error.

I'm running the site in the root folder of a website so I changed the following lines to:

UriMatchPrefix /
UriFormatPrefix /

Was that right? Is there anything else I need to change in that file? Is there any basic way of testing the rewrite DLL?

Thanks for any help!

Hi,

I never tested phpMyFAQ with rewrite rules in IIS8, sorry.

I think we have to fix this together if that's okay for you. We can do this via Skype or Jabber if you like.

Skype works, but I have no audio or video. Only text. I can also set up a mirror site so you can remote into the machine and have a look for yourself. Then we wouldn't be restricted on a specific time. Do you use any specific remote software?

With the other issue out of the way...did you ever check this out with IIS8? I'm still open for a remote connection if you need it.
