I need help doing custom permalinks in WordPress on a Windows IIS server using plesk control panel.
Windows IIS is not supporting HTACCESS, what can i do to make my permalinks work?
If I use a custom permalink, a 404 error comes up.
WordPress permalinks on Windows IIS server problem.
It happen because iis server not support mod_rewrite so your server must have installed URL’s Rewrite Module before you can set up your permalink,
Ask your server administrator to make sure the server already had that module installed in their server. After that you need to edit your WordPress web so you can edit your permalinks which you properly need.
In your server you must find web.config file then open the file to edit it, but sometimes that file couldn’t be found. So I give you two alternatives for setting to enable permalinks use iis server.
To add configuration file manually on your server which already installed URL Rewrite Module, use this link
For GoDaddy hosting, you can use this setup on this link
Follow their set up instructions carefully, so your permalinks problem can be solved.
