Ok so that link didnt really help me much, i wasnt really sure what to look for and i dont think i have a web.config file, also im using parallels plesk to run the webhosting side of things if that makes a difference.

Windows is best left to the desktop! :smile: Linux FTW! Is there a reason you moved from linux to windows? windows hosting is often more expensive as well, so it often times makes zero sense to use windows for web hosting, unless it's a corp server that must run other MS items such as sharepoint, exchange etc.
I use the server for things other than webhosting and it was the best option seems so i suck at linux, for example one of the things running on my windows server is a teamspeak 3 server. And the windows server, including the licence on a different host worked out cheaper than upgrading the the equivalent spec on linux with the previous host
Hi guys, i recently decided to start using a windows server instead of linux to make a few things unrelated to my website easier to manage.
The database didnt backup correctly and got corrupted so i decided to do a fresh install of IPB and start again.
The issues im having is with FURL,
In search engine optimization i have changed "redirect to new friendly URL format" to yes, as well as "use .htaccess mod_rewrite" to yes. I have also added the .htaccess as it says to do. The software is located in a folder called /forum/ as i plan to use IP content outside of the board directory like i have done in the past. I have also set the URL type to Query String
Now the issues im having are that in doing the above (ignore ip content for now) when i try to go to the members page for example, i get 404 not found error, i cant quite seem to figure it out.
Ive checked in global config to make sure it is enable and it is, i have also tried adding a .htaccess file to the root directory and it hasnt helped.
I had no issue with it on a linux server so is there something you have to do differently on a windows server?
