WordPress on Windows IIS7 and URL ReWrite (1 post)

    Hey,

    I'm running an Arabic WordPress 3.01 site on the following configration:

    • PHP 5.2.6 with FastCgiModule + IIS 7.0 on Windows
      Server 2008
    • RewriteModule V. 2.0 .
    • Default charset encoding of php is set to UTF-8.

    The URL ReWrite works fine with the Latin categories and articles titles but it doesn't work with Arabic titles so it only stop at the year/date and can't reach the article.

    I think it needs some rules to work with Unicode characters which I didn't use before.

    I use the following web config to allow the ReWriter:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <configuration>
    <system.webServer>

    <rewrite>
    <rules>
    <rule name="Main Rule" stopProcessing="true">
    <match url=".*" />
    <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
    <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true" />
    <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true" />
    </conditions>
    <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php" />
    </rule>
    </rules>
    </rewrite>
    </system.webServer>
    </configuration>

    Any idea for this type of configration?

    Thank you all in advance
    Hany
