Description Daniel H 2006-05-12 14:31:45 UTC
After installing MediaWiki onto IIS 5.1 and after moving the LocalSettings.php file 
and deleting the config folder it says go to http://localhost/wiki/index.php I do and 
it redirects to http://localhost/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page and says "Page cannot 
be displayed". Why is this coming up and how do I get it working?

Check the IIS error logs for clues.

There are no error log entries at the time of the 404 error.
Comment 3 Platonides 2006-05-14 10:29:39 UTC
http://localhost/wiki/* should redirect to 
http://localhost/w/index.php?title=* not http://localhost/wiki/index.php?title=*
(which would need to be redirected again!)

Not on a default installation where URL rewriting hasn't been set up yet.

I've run into this bug as well. Not a clue as to where to start looking.
Comment 6 Rob Church 2006-07-04 23:50:23 UTC
To those who've experienced this, can we have some more detail such as the OS,
etc? I'd like to attempt to reproduce it if possible.
Comment 7 Brion Vibber 2007-01-16 02:07:46 UTC
From my experience trying to set things up under IIS today, I'm guessing likely

* PHP not configured right for IIS (but in that case the installer shouldn't
work either)
* PHP's session directory is not set up correctly

Going to WORKSFORME this; if it continues to fail with 1.9.0/1.9.1, please add
