Permalinks fixed

So after sleeping I did the following:

  • Read the help pages for Helicon Tech ISAPI_Rewrite v3
  • Turned the plugin on
    In Helm: Home > Domains > simeonpilgrim.com > Website Extensions >
    URL Rewriting
  • Wrote my rewrite correctly

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule .* /blog/index.php [NC,L]
    <blank line>
    
  • Changed my WordPress permalinks to custom

    /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

New Blog Server

I have upgraded my hosting package from Unix to Windows as KiwiHosting are phasing out the Unix packages.

Luckily WordPress runs on Windows/IIS so I’ve taken the opportunity to upgrade to 2.7.x (SVN trunk) as trying to install 2.6.3 was giving me errors.

Now I’m just waiting for the DNS to roll over.

Will now be able to host .Net 3.5 apps, and therefore Silverlight stuff.  All very exciting really.
