we.config and cakephp applications

Is there a way to use web.config to replace .htaccess for a cakephp app on iis?

current .htaccess file

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c> RewriteEngine on RewriteRule ^$ webroot/ [L] RewriteRule (.*) webroot/$1 [L] </IfModule>


Used import in IIS6. It gives me this web.config, but site does not work. I get a white screen. Also tried this http://book.cakephp.org/revisions/view/19937/URL-Rewrites-on-IIS7-Windows-hosts, and it didnt work either.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <configuration> <system.webServer> <rewrite> <rules> <rule name="Imported Rule 1" stopProcessing="true"> <match url="^$" ignoreCase="false" /> <action type="Rewrite" url="webroot/" /> </rule> <rule name="Imported Rule 2" stopProcessing="true"> <match url="(.*)" ignoreCase="false" /> <action type="Rewrite" url="webroot/{R:1}" /> </rule> </rules> </rewrite> </system.webServer> </configuration>

Install the Microsoft URL Rewrite module for IIS. It'll let you import your apache rewrite rules. You can find the module here:


I use it with CakePHP on IIS 7.0 and 7.5 and it works a treat.


Can you try this configuration for me?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<clear />
<rule name="Imported Rule 1-1" stopProcessing="true">
<match url="^(.*)$" ignoreCase="false" />
<conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true" />
<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true" />
<action type="Rewrite" url="/webroot/index.php?url={R:1}" appendQueryString="true" />
