Support » Installing WordPress » IIS 7 problems

  • Hi – I have installed WP to a sub directory on a Windows 2008 server (IIS7, supports permalinks). I can get to Admin ok and sign in – however the site itself gives me a browser message that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
    Some searching around came up with putting
    remove_filter('template_redirect', 'redirect_canonical'); in functions.php – this has worked and I can now use the site.
    One small problem remains is that I cannot change the header image (I’ve set it to 2012 theme). I go to the page wp-admin/themes.php?page=custom-header and change things (even upload and apparently crop images) but when I click save changes nothing gets saved.
    Oddly if I click customize and go to wp-admin/customize.php I CAN save and publish.
    So far all the other admin options work just fine.

    I can’t help thinking that somehow the canonical redirects (or lack) is causing the header image problem.

    Any ideas?
