Seaside and IIS

Postby PhotonDemon » Fri Jul 17, 2009 6:18 am

Hi All,

I am at a point where I need to set up a test web site for my Seaside based web application. For my local testing I am using Apache and its Virtual hosts capability. Apache handles the file serving and passes URLs that start with "/seaside" on to my Seaside NT service after changing the port. There's more to the Apache setup than this but basically this rewrite rule does the work.

Code: Select all
RewriteRule ^/(seaside.*)$ http://localhost:8788/$1 [P,L]

My customer wants to run behind Microsoft's IIS. Does anyone know how to set up the same kind of thing in IIS?

Thanks, Lou

Hi Lou,

we're succesfully running your desired setup with a product from helicontech, isapi/rewrite.
It's an IIS-plugin, which implements the functionality of apache mod_rewrite and the likes (it's even syntax-compatible).

You can find more info on

We're running a high-volume website behind it.
Static content is served by rewriting to IIS (something like "RewriteRule ^/(seaside/files.*)$ http://localhost:80/$1 [P,L] )
and the dynamic content is served by a seaside instance on another port, as you suggested.

Kind regards,
