IIS 7.5 SEF Remove index.php within the URL

Post by Zathri » Tue Sep 13, 2011 6:49 pm

I apologize, but I've spent several hours researching SEF implementation on IIS and followed a dozen different variations.

I was able to get SEF and the removal of index.php within the URL in Windows Server 2003 IIS 6.0. I followed the documented instructions posted here:

http://docs.joomla.org/Enabling_Search_ ... S/IIS6/1.5

I used IIS Mod-ReWrite instead to remove the index.php from the URL.


But I am unable to remove index.php on Windows 7 IIS 7.5 after following the following directions,

http://docs.joomla.org/Enabling_Search_ ... RLs_on_IIS

What am I missing? Hopefully the same strategy can be used in both IIS 6 and 7.5 . Thanks.
