    IIS installation issue Link to this post

    Hi can you please help. I have installed SS on an IIS 7.5 server and the first screen i get after successfully installing is a broken home page see home.gif attached. Navigating to about us and contact us page shows the correct site. Then i try logging in to admin using /admin so it displays the login form which is good but after i hit submit button then it loads forever and later returns a message "CGI Timeout
    The specified CGI application exceeded the allowed time for processing. check error.gif. I have tried index.php/admin check home.gif. I have run the site successfully on an Apache server and works fine. Now i don't know much about IIS with SS, i called my host provider to find out if mod_rewrite is enabled and they said it is enabled. Are there any changes i should do to the .htaccess or what? what am i missing? ohh just in case this would be helpful to help me "i am running SS v2.4.5"

    Well judging from the error it's because the timeout period is too low for SS. See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc958804.aspx for an explanation.

    You should be able to configure the timeout period in your IIS server manager application. Increase the value then restart the service.
