    Hi,

    I have successfully installed wordpress via the web plattform installer. Everything worked fine.

    I get a localhost url where I can access and edit the wordpress engine.

    Now I want to change to custom domain: example.com

    I set up the domain in IIS 8 and direct it to the folder of the wordpress installation. Then I update my hosts file so it redirects the browser to the local folder.

    Then I go to "general settings" in wordpress and I change the WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) to example.com

    After pressing "save" I get the following message:

    HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error
    File monitoring is enabled for a file which could not be found

    What am I doing wrong or missing?

    Thx for any help

    running: IIS 8 on win8

    However I get the following
