Hi

I've got a new website, the old one was .php, the new one is .aspx

i'm tryng to setup 301 redirects to intercept the old URLs and point to new ones

firstly it is important to note, I'm not trying to host PHP files
I simply want IIS to incerpt the PHP files, and then redirect to the aspx equivelent.

is there anyway of doing this without installing 3rd party components?

I was thinking you could create an isapi extension that somehow makes it work?

any advice apprecitated

also..... the urls have url parameters (index.php?page=1234)

While it is 3rd party software, and you are looking to do this without 3rd party software, I would still highly recommend using the ISAPI Rewrite module by from Helicon: http://www.isapirewrite.com/
The reason is that it will be the easiest way to do it.

Without this you will need to configure IIS for each and every page that needs to be redirected, as far as I know. I personally try to avoid this, but here is a reference on how to do redirects: http://www.getfoundnow.com/iis_301_redirect.htm

To be completely honest, I'm not even sure if what you are looking for is possible.

Your third option, which you were also looking to avoid would be to install PHP and create redirects with PHP pages.

A final option that I would consider second after the Rewrite Module would be to set up a custom 404 page where I would analyze the requested URI. If it was a PHP page then decide what page to send them to.

Anyway, I would consider the possibilities in the following order:

1) ISAPI Rewrite Module
2) Custom 404 page
3) Install PHP and redirect per page
4) Configuring IIS6 to do the redirects

Others may have a different opinion, or be able supply more information.

i used a shared hosting account i have access too, and setup the domain on this (its php)
I then used that to point to the windows server (other domain) using .htaccess files

crude but affective
