    Install on IIS 5.1 with Web PI is impossible Link to this post

    I must finally give up.

    *************** I have installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled with both WebPI and manually.

    *************** I have patched the config-form.html file to include the closing php tags on lines 62 and 63

    *************** I have edited web.config from its original code(which did not work) to:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <sectionGroup name="system.webServer">
    <sectionGroup name="rewrite">
    <section name="rewriteMaps" overrideModeDefault="Allow" />
    <section name="rules" overrideModeDefault="Allow" />
    <clear />
    <rule name="RequestBlockingRule1" patternSyntax="Wildcard" stopProcessing="true">
    <match url="*" />
    <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
    <add input="{REMOTE_ADDR}" negate="true" pattern="" />
    <add input="{URL}" pattern="*.ss" />
    <action type="CustomResponse" statusCode="403" />
    <rule name="SilverStripe Clean URLs" stopProcessing="true">
    <match url="^(.*)$" />
    <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
    <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true" />
    <action type="Rewrite" url="sapphire/main.php?url={R:1}" appendQueryString="true" />

    ***************** I have edited index.php from its original code(which did not work) to:
    3 /************************************************************************************
    4 ************************************************************************************
    5 ** **
    6 ** If you can read this text in your browser then you don't have PHP installed. **
    7 ** Please install PHP 5.0 or higher, preferably PHP 5.2. **
    8 ** **
    9 ************************************************************************************
    10 ************************************************************************************/
    12 /**
    13 * This script bolts on top of SilverStripe/Sapphire to allow access without the use of .htaccess
    14 * rewriting rules.
    15 */
    17 // This is the URL of the script that everything must be viewed with.
    18 define('BASE_SCRIPT_URL','index.php/');
    20 $ruLen = strlen($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
    21 $snLen = strlen($_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME']);
    23 if($ruLen > $snLen && substr($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'],0,$snLen+1) == ($_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'] . '/')) {
    24 $url = substr($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'],$snLen+1);
    25 $url = strtok($url, '?');
    26 $_GET['url'] = $_REQUEST['url'] = $url;
    28 $fileName = dirname($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']) . '/' . $url;
    30 /**
    31 * This code is a very simple wrapper for sending files
    32 * Very quickly pass through references to files
    33 */
    34 if(file_exists($fileName)) {
    35 $fileURL = dirname($_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME']) . '/' . $url;
    36 header($_SERVER['SERVER_PROTOCOL'] . ' 301 Moved Permanently');
    37 header("Location: $fileURL");
    38 die();
    39 }
    40 }
    42 $_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME'] = str_replace('/index.php','/sapphire/main.php', $_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']);
    43 $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'] = str_replace('/index.php','/sapphire/main.php', $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME']);
    45 chdir('sapphire');
    46 require_once('sapphire/main.php');

    *************** I have installed isapi_rewrite3 and followed all suggestions and posts, but I refuse to spend $99 unless I know it will get Silverstripe running.

    *************** I have reinstalled Php in both ISAPI and FastCGI modes.

    *************** I have tried so many combinations from so many sites and forums that I have completely lost patience in over a week of trying to get this CMS installed.

    If it were not important to me I would not have tried so hard.

    What really irks me is that the site boasts of how easy it is to install on an IIS 5.1 (that doesn't support mod_rewrite), using Web PI.

    I really think someone should acknowledge that without a dedicated effort to prove that it DOES work, you shouldn't boast that it does. Especially, if you are going to implicate Microsoft by way of the WebPI.

    Sorry, I just had to vent.

    I cannot use this CMS, until I decide to try again on a different platform. Because my development box (XP Pro, IIS 5.1, MySQL, Php, .net 3.5, VS 2008 Express) will simply not permit me to install or adapt the application, so that I can deploy into a production environment later.

    You win!
