Akismet and IIS 6?
Running IIS6 (win2k3 server), PHP 5.0.5 and mysql 4.1.15.
Been running wp1.5 for a while, just upgraded to wp2rc3 this evening. In general, everything seems to be working very well — kudos!
My category links work now! Yay, one IIS related problem gone.
One small issue. I thought this would be a good time to give Akismet a shot (been using SK2) but I can’t even get to the plugin page to enter my key.
I activate the plugin and am prompted that I need to enter my key. I click the link and end up at:
which is essentially a blank page:
Invalid plugin page
Doesn’t that url look a little… odd… ?
I’ve messed around with that url, but can’t seem to figure out what to manually make it to work.
If you search for related keywords, you’ll find numerous posts ditto. Some of the posters have discovered that the key works fine in a day or so….
So that goofy (malformed?) url will suddenly start working? I suppose I could turn it back on tomorrow and see what happens….
(I did some searching but didn’t really hit anything in the beta group that appeared to be the same. Perhaps I missed ’em).
As to the “goofy” url, I honestly couldn’t say – the other posters didn’t IIRC post urls. You would probably find the related threads in the 2.0beta forum. Let me look and see if I can find one of them….
Okay, give a look at this thread. Couple of posters had luck waiting it out, piginzen far as I know has still not had any luck.
Thank you! I’ll give it a read.

Ah, I have a bit of a different issue. I never actually get to see a page where I might enter that key. I can see where waiting might work if the issue was my key. Alas, my issue is somehow related to the plugin or my site.
Sounds like a similar issue to:
See my reply (for possible solution) here:
Aye, similar yet different. Tried your “hack”, but no change. I still have yet to be able to get to any sort of Aksimet manage or configuration page. 🙁
Seems like my url (refer to the long goofy url above) should be something like:
And that gets me closer. At least I see the “admin frame”, but still nothing to config.
I’ve downloaded a fresh akismet plugin and installed it. same thing.
All my other plugins are working just fine.
I am having the same problem – tried the posted “hack” as well as waiting it out for a while now, no success, it just doesen’t want to accept my key. I’ve tried to enter the key manually as well as cut&pasting. Could it be that I simply have a “wrong” key? I see that I’ve registered on wordpress.com, however, all support redirects me here, to the .org place.
Does anyone know what is causing this? I am running wp 2.0.5, IIS 6.0 and fairly new versions of both PHP and MySQL.
