Support » Fixing WordPress » web.config redirect problem

  • Hi there,

    I am having trouble configuring the web.config file (host uses windows IIS servers).
    With permalink setting to /%postname%/ a 404 error occured (when visiting homepage), the rest of the pages worked perfectly (with …/slugname).

    In order to fix the issue with the homepage, the host had configured this web.config file:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
              <rule name="Main Rule" stopProcessing="true">
                <match url=".*" />
                <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
                  <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true" />
                  <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true" />
                <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php/{R:0}" />
           <httpRedirect enabled="true" destination="/home" childOnly="true" />

    Now it works, but yet another problem occurs.
    The WordPress Dashboard isn’t reachable anymore by /wp-admin or /wp-login.php

    Both are changed to /home/wp-admin or /home/wp-login.

    Any idea on how to fix this?
    Is there an option to exclude *.php files or something from redirecting?

    Hope you can help out!
