Wordpress permalinks on IIS?


Staff member
I am using WordPress on Windows 7 IIS to develop. I am uploading images in WordPress for a blog post. The image displays fine on the web site but as soon as I enable permalinks the images no longer work and any future images uploaded I get back an error:

HTTP Error 500.50 - URL Rewrite Module Error.
The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

I am not sure why this would be happening, here is my

<pre class="lang-xml prettyprint-override">
&lt;?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?&gt;
        &lt;rule name="wordpress" patternSyntax="Wildcard"&gt;
          &lt;match url="*" /&gt;
              &lt;add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true" /&gt;
              &lt;add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true" /&gt;
          &lt;action type="Rewrite" url="index.php" /&gt;

As soon as I turn off my permalinks and use the default it works, does anyone know why this could be?
