New install on Windows Server 2003, now 404 not found (3 posts)

    Our new host has Windows Server 2003, so I'm migrating from a Linux/Apache install to Win/IIS. The host does not support one-click, I had to download, unzip, ftp to the new site.

    I installed everything in the root, htdocs, so that looks identical to my previous install. Config.php is also in the root.

    When I type in the ip address,, that results in a 404 not found. If I add the id of a page,, it comes up fine. I uploaded a file to check the PHP/MySql install, that looks fine to my eyes.

    The admin site works just fine too. I've used my host's proprietary control panel to open up permissions at the root and all subfolders. I don't have access to IIS or php.ini.

    Any ideas? I've exhausted mine.

    Might have something to do with lack of mod rewrite?:

    Hmmm, This looks like something I need to convince the host to implement, as I don't have direct access to their server. I'll let support know it exists and see what they say.
