    Hi everyone,

    I have got a dedicated Windows 2008 Server with IIS 7.

    I have installed WordPress MU using subdomains on

    I have created the needed A dns record '*' to be able to create multiple blogs.

    I then created a blog called 'test' which should run on, well nothing is coming up at the moment? Just an emply plesk page weirdly enough is coming up? All the permissions are in place but I really don't know what is needed.

    Does IIS7 also need special configuration? I have tried multiple things, I really don't know what to do now. Is it not possible to run WPMU on Win2008?

    PLEASEEEE help me.

    Below is the code for my .htaccess, i hear that it doesnt affect IIS7? But how do I then convert this to IIS 7 rules?

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    #uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/$ index.php [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.*wp-content/plugins.*
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2 [L]
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^.*/wp-admin$
    RewriteRule ^(.+)$ $1/ [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule . - [L]
    RewriteRule  ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule  ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    <Files async-upload.php>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off

    I solved the problem, I just had to create empty subdomains pointing at the root directory. Thats it.

    You have to use some rewrite module anyway ...


    or URL Rewrite Module in IIS 7

    I have working fine, my question now can i make display that subdomain site? no redirection.

    There is a blog post by the link this should then look like

    What A record do I need to create? What do I need to do on IIS7? is any WPMU Plugin involved in this?

    Please help me with this last bit, thank you.
