I am having trouble with permalinks and IIS.
When I setup my permalinks to CUSTOM:
And I try and access my site:
I get a 404 error. Now I see the post at the home page, this only when I click on the post to bring it up individually. Also, trying to access the categories without a post doesn't work.
I have, of course, followed the advice for changing the php.ini file to include:
cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1
cgi.force_redirect = 0
I found a fairly good article:
but it seems to require a costly ISAPI_rewrite.
Is this really the only option?
Although I have read a few articles, I am a bit confused about what the problem is. Can someone explain this problem?
Also, what does the index.php have to do with the link. As you can see, my links don't include that. I tried putting the index.php into it, and it fails with a different error: No input file specified.
Any help would be appreciated.
