I had been developing wordpress sites from last one year but never used window hosting but one of my client have window hosting. Apache module mod_rewrite in collaboration with .htaccess used to serve my purpose of Permalinks But in the window server I donot have any idea at all. I tried copying few xml in web.config but donot know where I am Wrong. I am on a sshared server with no access to Shell I want equivalent action of linux hosting in window hosting 1) Enable module_rewrite 2) Write .htaccess
You'll need to know which version of IIS running on the server. Old IIS did not have url re-write built-in and require third party module to function. New IIS have them built-in and some cases they also can load your .htaccess file for rules.
Make sure you have IIS URL Rewrite installed and enabled.
