    Hello XF Community,
    Lately I have been having problems installing Xenforo with IIS 7.5 and have not found a single tutorial on how to do it. I need help installing XF on IIS 7.5, if you can please help me as this has been bugging me for the longest.

    What particular problems are you having?

    I have done several installations on IIS (not sure of the versions).

    It mainly has to do with the rewrite rules.

    Not for FURLS though, for regular rewrite rules.

    I tried using Helicon Ape to no avail.

    What are the rewrite rules for?
    Is it an import?
    If so, from which software?

    I tried using Helicon Ape to convert the htaccess.

    The rewrite rules that come with XF are for friendly URLs, in which case the link above contains the appropriate IIS configuration.

    If you're talking about other rewrite rules, you'll need to be more specific.

    I tried the rewrite rules above but they still gave me an error.

    The ones from the link? Saved in your web.config?

    What was the error?

    Says this,
    HTTP Error 403.14 - Forbidden
    The Web server is configured to not list the contents of this directory.

    It still does not work, I can't even get to the installation. I do not know if anybody can help me via Teamviewer or any other multi viewer software because I really need the help.

    Mind sharing how you fixed it though?

    EDIT: Fixed this. Apparently I had to install URL Rewrite Module for IIS.
