Permalinks, Win 2k3 and IIS 6 (6 posts)

    Hi,

    I successfully installed WP on my win 2k3 server running IIS 6. I have PHP 5 and MySQL 5 installed too.

    I'd like to use pretty permalinks but so far, I have only been able to work with querystring like http://64.15.152.136/?p=36

    I search a lot and it seems like nobody has succeed with IIS 6 on win 2k3.

    I tried everything listed in there:

    http://blog.taragana.com/index.php/archive/wordpress-tip-on-permalink-options/

    For example, I added this in my php.ini:

    cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1
    cgi.force_redirect = 0

    I also use this as personalized marker:

    /index.php/%category%/%postname%/

    It keeps saying « No input file specified ».

    Anyone has a magical trick for this one?

    Thanks,

    Stephane

    The usual approach is to do a custom permalink structure with /index.php/ at the front.

    There was a post here, in the forums, within the last week or two with an interesting work-around. I just can't seem to find it, but you might try searching it up.

    Great!

    It's working, but I'll get in touch with the author of that trick.

    Thanks,

    Finally, I got it to work on IIS 6 and win 2k3 with this:

    My ISAPI filter (Permalink) problem - How I fixed it - Remaining Security Questions:

    I had followed the following site word for word:
    http://www.juryriggin.com/2006/11/07/fixing-permalinks-when-using-wordpress-windows-2003-iis-60

    but WordPress ISAPI filter was creating many Application log errors 2268 and 2214

    So I then (most hazardly and without web security in mind) added the WordPress users "site_name_Anon" and "site_name_Admin" to the IIS_WPG user Group (it is creatd by W2k3 by default) and I also gave the user IIS_WPG "read" and "execute" permissions to the WordPressPlugin.dll file. **My Permalinks and ISAPI WordPress Filter now work**

    The question I have now is: What security holes have I created?

    ******************************
    Why I did what I did:

    I had gone to the following site to troubleshoot my ISAPI WordPress Filter problem.

    http://blogs.msdn.com/david.wang/archive/2005/06/21/HOWTO-Diagnose-and-Fix-Common-ISAPI-Filter-Installation-Failures.aspx?CommentPosted=true#commentmessage

    It educated me and I learned that my error was :
    Data: 05 00 00 00 -Win32 error 5 - NET HELPMSG 5 returns "Access is denied."

    The article then mentions:

    "For IIS6 in worker process isolation mode, the process identity is configurable and is at least a member of the IIS_WPG group" (see more on the link)

    That's when I got the idea to add the WordPress users "site_name_Anon" and "site_name_Admin" to the IIS_WPG user Group (it is creatd by W2k3 by default) and I also gave the user IIS_WPG "read" and "execute" permissions on the WordPressPlugin.dll file.
