IIS 8.5 redirection

Hello Experts,

I have been trying to setup IIS redirection on a 2012 R2 server but things didn't turn out the way they should.

I have used URL Rewrite 2.0 to achieve this but this result is something weird like this:

http://www.http.com//domain.com/

http://http//domain.com

I'm trying to redirect non Ws to Ws. Site Bindings are set as the following:

www.domain.com (http)

domain.com (http)

https

--------------------------------------------

By the way, this script's admin panel works just fine along with sub URLs. The indexes are the ones not working.

Any tips?

Appreciated in advance.

please show the rule.  your web config should look like the following

<rewrite>
    <rules>
 <rule name="Redirect domain.com to www" patternSyntax="Wildcard" stopProcessing="true">
           <match url="*" />
            <conditions>
                <add input="{HTTP_HOST}" pattern="domain.com" />
            </conditions>
            <action type="Redirect" url="http://www.domain.com/{R:0}" />
        </rule>
    </rules>
</rewrite>

I guess I need to elaborate a little bit to make you see the whole image.

Here is my wwwroot web.config:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
  <location inheritInChildApplications="false">
    <system.webServer>
      <modules>
        <add name="OwaUrlModule" type="Microsoft.Exchange.HttpProxy.OwaUrlModule,Microsoft.Exchange.OwaUrlModule,Version=15.0.0.0,Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" preCondition="" />
      </modules>
    </system.webServer>
    <system.web>
      <machineKey validationKey="AutoGenerate,IsolateApps" />
      <compilation defaultLanguage="c#" debug="false">

By the way, it is only one static IP and one domain, do not get confused by the parts wiped out in dark blue.

Do not worry about the last rule which removes www. I have taken it out already, but the problem is that no matter what kind of rule I apply whether rewrite Ws or not, no result.
