    Hi. I'm building my first WordPress site locally before pushing to my host -- who runs IIS exclusively. I noticed in your doc that this runs on Server 2003 IIS 6. How about IIS 5.1?

    Thanks in advance,

    @fromtheranks I doubt the version of IIS will matter, but this plugin is only supported with ISAPI Rewrite 3.0, which is most similar to Apache's mod_rewrite.

    There's no substitute for mod_rewrite, but ISAPI Rewrite 3 and ISAPI Rewriter should help keep your head above water and make life easier.

    Good luck with your setup! Please comment back and let us know if it works!

    Thanks for the reply and I apologize for not getting back sooner -- sort of lost track of this thread while in the "throws of development". I spoke with my Host about this and he said "leave it alone for now", so I'll get back to this later with an update.
