mod rewrite IIS

Post by GinaF » March 18th, 2013, 6:31 am

Hi
I will be working with IIS and see that I need mod rewrite for this.
Sorry, I don't know much about IIS, but I did notice that you wrote
"May work on IIS with mod_rewrite "
Can I expect to get this bridge working with IIS?
Can you give me any pointers or advice?
Many thanks

Sorry, we just can't help with rewrite for IIS.
I remember one of our customers used this solution:
http://www.micronovae.com/ModRewrite/ModRewrite.html

It worked fine.

I have got mod rewrite working. (installed http://www.iis.net/downloads/microsoft/url-rewrite ) and then followed the easily found instructions on google for setting up mod rewrite in Joomla (plus the web.config alterations laid out here: http://www.iis.net/learn/application-fr ... mla-on-iis )
That got it working.

Now, can you confirm that your Bridge will work with IIS before I purchase it? (or does it just work with Apache?)
Thanks
