Support » Fixing WordPress » Media missing when permalinks enabled

  • Running WordPress 2.9.2 on IIS7

    When I upload images or documents using the media uploader everything works fine, but when I enable any kind of permalink structure the images don’t display, they’re all giving me a 500 error.

    I tried changing the default path to a folder in the root but it didn’t help. I’ve set it back to default

    I have no enabled plugins

    My current permalink struture is

    And the web.config for this site is

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
             <rule name="wordpress" patternSyntax="Wildcard">
              <match url="*"/>
                <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true"/>
                <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true"/>
              <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php/"/>
          <smtp deliveryMethod="SpecifiedPickupDirectory">
            <specifiedPickupDirectory pickupDirectoryLocation="C:\inetpub\mailroot\Pickup"/>

    Any help much appreciated.
