CGI Error… Being told its because of my permalink setup?

  • Hello,

    Have had nothing but headaches with this hosting provider, but I have to stay with them for a few reasons.

    Anyways click the link below, then click any sub-page. You will get a CGI error. The hosting provider is telling me its because of the custom permalinks? I’ve done a couple dozen wordpress sites and always use this structure. The host is using a windows based server…

    Any idea how I can remedy this? As I am sure a lot of you know this structure is the best for SEO reasons, and I really would like to keep this structure.

  • Hi,

    If the site is running on IIS 7 you need to get the server administrator to import the rewrite rules from the .htaccess file generated by WordPress into the IIS Virtual server URL rewrite settings.
