Is it possible to redirect all my web requests to index.htm ? From looking at forums, Ive managed to get together:-
<?xml version="1.0"?>

<configuration>
    <system.web>
        <rule name="rule 1g" stopProcessing="true">
	        <match url="."  />
	        <action type="Rewrite" url="/index.php"  />
        </rule>
    </system.web>
</configuration>

Open in new window


However all I get is:-
HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error
The requested page cannot be accessed because the related configuration data for the page is invalid.

Im hoping that once the page has been redirected I can query the requested page,

This should work:
    <configuration>
       <system.webServer>
          <httpRedirect enabled="true" exactDestination="true" httpResponseStatus="Found">
             <add wildcard="*" destination="/index.php" />
          </httpRedirect>
       </system.webServer>
    </configuration>

I am assuming of course that you are asking to redirect all requests to index.php ?

I was hoping to do all pages, so using your example something like this:-
<configuration>
    <system.webServer>
        <httpRedirect enabled="true" exactDestination="true" httpResponseStatus="Found">
            <add wildcard="index.php" StopProcessing="true" />
            <add wildcard="*.jpg" StopProcessing="true" />
            <add wildcard="*.png" StopProcessing="true" />
            <add wildcard="*.js" StopProcessing="true" />
            <add wildcard="*" destination="/index.php" />
        </httpRedirect>
    </system.webServer>
</configuration>

The problem I have found with this redirect is that it redirects everything to index.php, including index.php and any js or css files I have

We can use URL rewrite for this ( I think the below example should work:


So we simply match the wildcard on the url and create negate conditions for the files you want to exclude
<rewrite>
  <rules>
    <rule name="Rewrite All" enabled="true" stopProcessing="true">
      <match url=".*" />
      <conditions>
        <add input="{REQUEST_URI}" pattern="^index.php" ignoreCase="true" negate="true" />
        <add input="{REQUEST_URI}" pattern="*.jpg" ignoreCase="true" negate="true" />
        <add input="{REQUEST_URI}" pattern="*.png" ignoreCase="true" negate="true" />
        <add input="{REQUEST_URI}" pattern="*.js" ignoreCase="true" negate="true" />
      </conditions>
      <action type="Redirect" redirectType="Permanent" url="http://www.example.com/index.php" />
    </rule>
  </rules>
</rewrite>
