If you search for how to setup a Wordpress blog using permalinks on windows hosting you will find a lot of hits referring to url rewriting which is very complex and confusing.
In the end going down the url rewriting path is a waste of time especially if you hosting company has a custom 404 redirect in place.
If you are still interested in url rewriting, please see my other blog entry about setting up a Wordpress Blog on Windows Hosting using Managed Fusion URL Rewriter
How-To Get Wordpress Permalinks working on Windows Hosting:
- Install and configure Wordpress as you normally would, including your permalink settings.
- To get permalinks to work correctly with no url rewriting needed, change in the hosting control panel the 404 redirect to point Wordpress’s index.php.
