IIS Set Up

(This page is not complete.)

We've been mostly using the Apache Webserver, but when testing on IIS, we discovered the following issues.

Known Issues
If you are setting up your own IIS host, you may find that you need to grant Modify and possibly Write permissions to IUSR on the website folder. If you don't, you may see one or more of the following issues:

  • When you upload an XHTML file using the SIL Dictionary plugin and you see the message "no data."
  • When you try an automatic update of a plugin, or perhaps even an automatic update of WordPress, you are for your ftp host name, user name, and password.
  • When you try to install an a new plugin, you see a 500 Internal Server Error.
