Installation with Windows-IIS (rewrite rules)

Since version 5+ Post Affiliate Pro stores all templates, images, CSS files in database instead of directly in file system.

In order to keep the link structure untouched (backward compatibility reasons) we have added a few rules to .htaccess files which redirect requests to correct files which load the requested resources from DB.

Also since version 5.4.24.3 we have added an extra option to hash names of tracking scripts which will work only in case of correct rewrite rules.

Since IIS doesn't support .htaccess files you have to add the rewrite rules from the following files to your ISS configuration:

/.htaccess
/scripts/.htaccess
(responsible for hashing of tracking scripts)
/api/v2/.htaccess

Windows-IIS server have built in utility for converting Apache htaccess rules to Windows-IIS rules. You can consult the official manual on this website http://www.iis.net/learn/extensions/url-rewrite-module/importing-apache-modrewrite-rules
