Windows’s case (IIS server)

On Windows we usually use a IIS server. MushRaider can handle it but you have to make some modifications to get it working : create a file named web.config in the root folder (in same folder than “app”, “lib”, “plugins”…) of the app and add it the following code :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
 <rule name="Rewrite requests to test.php"
 <match url="^test.php(.*)$" ignoreCase="false" />
 <action type="Rewrite" url="app/webroot/test.php{R:1}" />
 <rule name="Exclude direct access to app/webroot/*"
 <match url="^app/webroot/(.*)$" ignoreCase="false" />
 <action type="None" />
 <rule name="Rewrite routed access to assets(img, css, files, js, favicon)"
 <match url="^(img|css|files|js|favicon.ico)(.*)$" />
 <action type="Rewrite" url="app/webroot/{R:1}{R:2}"
 appendQueryString="false" />
 <rule name="Rewrite requested file/folder to index.php"
 <match url="^(.*)$" ignoreCase="false" />
 <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php"
 appendQueryString="true" />
