    2.4 and httpd.ini Link to this post

    Hi all... trying to install Silverstripe on a IIS 6 with URL Rewriting done with Helicon Tech ISAPI_Rewrite v2. I can install, and can access the contact-us and about-us pages, but I cannot access the admin section.

    Any suggestions on what to do from here? Changing the .htaccess to use the ISAPI rules does nothing to access the admin, and simply using a httpd.ini file as suggested by the host does nothing as well.

    Thanks!

    A workaround for now would be to use index.php/admin instead of admin which basically bypasses the rewrite rules and does a normal request.

    As for ISAPI Rewrite, I am not familiar with this. Does accessing admin produce a 404 error?

    Unfortunately, it looks as though the problem was not solved here either: http://silverstripe.org/installing-silverstripe/show/263969. Searching on Google appears to have eluded others trying to access the admin too.

    Cheers,
    Sean

    Yea, even doing the index.php/admin workaround doesn't work - it just takes one to a broken version of the homepage. The same with index.php/home

    Seems odd that while URL rewrites work for for pages like /contact-us/ and /about/ but not for admin.

    http://www.happyhorsetack.com/staging/index.php/admin - Broken homepage
    http://www.happyhorsetack.com/staging/admin - 404 error

    - is there something unique going on here that is outside of the rewrites? Is there perhaps another set of rules somewhere?

    I saw the post "Silverstripe on IIS 6.0 with Helicon ISAP Rewrite 3" but with the differences being SS 2.4 and Rewrite 2 thought maybe there was something I'm missing.

    I believe people have had more luck using IIRF instead for IIS 6 rewriting.

    If you're absolutely having to use IIS 6 instead of IIS 7, it might be worth taking a look at IIRF.

    Although, if you're on a shared host you might be out of luck.
