Install on MS IIS

Post by JeffKelso »

I have tried to install WonderCMS on one of my ASPX web sites but cannot get it to work. I initially created a sub directory of the wwwroot cleverly called WonderCMS and loaded the app there. When I run index.php I get the following error message:

The page cannot be displayed
There is a problem with the page you are trying to reach and it cannot be displayed. It is most likely that configuration files for this url are corrupted.
Please try the following:
Click the Refresh button, or try again later.
Open the home page, and then look for links to the information you want.
If you believe you should be able to view this directory or page, please contact the Web site administrator by using the e-mail address or phone number listed on the home page.
HTTP Error 500
IISPassword for Internet Information Services

I then reloaded the app to the wwwroot directory and got the same error message.

The site is configured as follows:
ASP: Installed
ASP.Net: Version 3.5
Perl: Installed
PHP: Version 5 (note: version 4 is an option)
Python: Installed
CGI-Bin: Installed

What am I doing wrong (I assume it is me and not you)?

I think this could be a .htaccess problem, try changing it to:

Code: Select all

<Files password>
order allow,deny
deny from all
Options +FollowSymLinks
Options +Indexes
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^([^\.]+)$ ?page=$1 [NC,L]

Code: Select all

RewriteBase /path/to/wondercmsfolder/
Let me know if this fix worked for you.
