Configuration problems on IIs6

  • Hello,

    I’m trying to install bbPress on an IIS 6 server.

    The installation script appears to have completed successfully and can be viewed at the following URL:

    Unfortunately, there appear to be a few problems with the installation as follows:

    1) When clicking on “Your first topic” in Firefox, I receive the following error:

    “Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete”

    Browsing the link in IE 7 just appears to hang the browser

    2) The admin home page appears to work, but n closer inspection the shortcuts “Dashboard, Users, Content and Site Management” all have incorrect paths:”

    instead of

    I think my config.php is ok:

    $bb->domain = ‘’;

    $bb->path = ‘/forums/’;

    $bb->mod_rewrite = false;

    Does anybody have any ideas that may help me (other than move the forum to Apache that is!).

  • oh, i got it,

    “WHAT IS move the forum to apache?”, hehehe!, jeopardy joke!

    Problem #1)

    Your redicection problem. It seems that your page “A” is directing to page “B” which is directing BACK to page “A”. So your stuck in a loop. Firefox is smart enough to recognize this. IE is’nt (surprize surprize). Spend a bit more time on it, and keep that in mind. However, the solution to your second problem may solve the first one.

    Problem #2)

    Okay, instead of

    $bb->domain = ‘’;

    $bb->path = ‘/forums/’;


    $bb->domain = ‘’;

    $bb->path = ‘/confocal/forums/’;

    Hope that works,

    Thanks Mozey – that did it.

    Maybe I should stick to microscopes….

    Thanks for the speedy reply.
