I've installed SS into IIS 7.5 with FastCGI and PHP addons...but there are some problems with url rewrite.
Url rewrite is ON. I've imported Apache mod_rewrite Rules from .htaccess to IIS7, but install wrote:

Friendly URLs are not working. This is most likely because a rewrite module isn't configuredcorrectly on your site. Please check the following things in your Apache configuration; you may need to get your web host or server administrator to do this for you:

* mod_rewrite is enabled
* AllowOverride All is set for your directory

So, if i go to /admin , I've Security/login?BackURL=%2Fss%2Fadmin

Have you had this problem?


1) Reimporting mod_rewrites rules
2) Reinstall SS
3) It goes....

An now ... I made some tests for benchmarking on IIS...

Hi there,

You don't need to import any rules, just have a web.config file sitting in your SilverStripe website folder. See [url=]here[/url] for more information.

Note that the 2.4 installer will support installing directly from IIS, as it will write the friendly URL rules into web.config for you if [url=]IIS URL Rewrite[/url] is installed.
