i'm trying to get SEF urls to work on a site i'm working on, running joomla 1.5.20 stable on an IIS 7 server, where fastcgi is installed. the Host is Mijnhostingpartner.nl.
First let me describe what the problem is. I have created the website on my own hosting space, that is with the same provider, but a different server. The problem i was having was that i could not get SEF working the way i should, but then somehow after enabling all three SEF options in the global configuration, it started working (on my dev site). It had something to do with the order in which i activated the SEF options. One by one, save, next one, but i have no clue in which order, and tried them on the production server, but no effect. Now i've moved it over to the actual server, but there i'm getting the same problem as before, with all three activated, i can click whatever menu i want, it sends me back to the front page.
I've tried akeeba backup/restore, i've tried copying it over with ftp, replacing the db with phpmyadmin, but i can't get it working on the actual server.
$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] = $_SERVER['HTTP_X_REWRITE_URL'];
was inserted at the beginning of the template, but no effect.
I've put the web.config in place, and seems to be working on my dev server.
Anyone have any idea why it's not working on the production one, even after doing a one on one copy of the dev one?
