URL Redirection in IIS via rewrite in web config

Posted on 2017-09-15

Last Modified: 2017-10-13
I am trying to redirect a URL from http://www.rudythecarguy.com/ApplyNow.com to http://www.rudythecarguy.com/ApplyNow. I added the rewrite section below to the system.webserver section of the web.config, but it doesn't work. Is there a kind soul out there who can shed some light on this darkness?
Thank you.
        <rule name="RudyRedirect" stopProcessing="true">
          <match url="www.rudythecarguy.com/ApplyNow.com" />
          <action type="Redirect" url="www.rudythecarguy.com/ApplyNow" redirectType="Permanent" />

Do you have the URL rewrite module installed in your IIS?

Please run the follow command from a PowerShell console prompt?

Get-WindowsFeature | ? Name -like "Web*"

Open in new window

Then post the output of the command.  This will show all the IIS features that are currently installed on the server.
