H, I've installed wp on IIS7.5 machine. But I'm having error when my permalink setting is line: /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

Problem is the index page (root page /) gives 404 error (EDIT: error is in a wordpress page, not server default page). But I'm not getting 404 when permalink is default or /index.php/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

Site can be seen here: http://marmarabote.innovacube.com/

I've also rewrited urls in web.config like:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
                    <rule name="Main Rule" stopProcessing="true">
                        <match url=".*" />
                        <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll">
                            <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile"
                            negate="true" />
                            <add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}"
                            matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true" />
                        <action type="Rewrite" url="index.php" />

you seem to have solved it – edelwater Nov 14 '10 at 0:35
@edelwater: no I haven't. I just use index.php as home url but this is not very good solution. Since I have an html page that redirects to index.php. – Hasan Gürsoy Nov 25 '10 at 9:34
