iis images not showing in a wordpress sub directory
Posted on 2010-08-28
I have wasted a good half of a day on this... woudl welcome any ideas ... it has to be something very simple.
I am running iis 6 on win2k2003 64 bit, with php / mysql installed.
Ihave installed a word press blog on IIS6 on its own domain.i.e. blog.com It works 100% perfectly.
I then install a word press blog on an existsing site i.e. site.com/blog it all works 100% except none of the images show up.
Firstly I assumed it was a paths problem.... checked... it is fine if I rightlcik the missing image the path is fine and correct. I then try linking directly to the file in a browser.. I get the page cannot be found error. Then I think it may be permissions., have they propogated correctly... they have and they are exactly the same as the rest of the site. Then I create a new directory in the root (outside of the wordpress directory) and stiock the image there ... the image shows up just fine.
For some reason the images if they are located in the wordpress directory will just not show up... I really cannot think why.
Look forward to your ideas.
